...beautifully ripe and nicely elegant nose trimmed in a deft touch of wood spice wafts from the glass to reveal more robust and bigger flavors that offer good richness and sweetness on the concentrated, velvety and mouth coating finish...very well balanced and a lovely mix of refinement and punch.
Les Chaumes is a 16.1-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the Vosne-Romanee appellation of Burgundy’s Cote de Nuits. Located on the appellation’s southern boundary, it is just to the west of Aux Malconsorts. The slight slope of the vineyard makes for good drainage, and the soil is a rich mix of clay and alluvial soil.
This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
