Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Chaumes" 2009, François Lamarche
The "Chaumes" premier cru sits on the south of Vosne close to La Tâche. Picked from September 12th reflecting the ripeness of the 2009 vintage, this Vosne premier cru has strawberry, wild strawberry and chalky aromas. Silky front palate, excellent structure on the mid-palate, a broad meaty and savoury finish. Not only will this Vosne "Chaumes" 2009 live long (quite rare for the 2009 vintage) it will fascinate the olfactory senses due to the multi-phase impacts on the palate. A remarkable wine which offers everything. Tasted courtesy of the Justerini & Brooks Burgundy 2009 tasting.
