"The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Les Chaumes 1er Cru has a winsome bouquet of perfumed raspberry, crushed strawberry and rose petal aromas that boast exquisite delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, vibrant red and black fruit and a very linear, vivid finish that conveys a sense of coiled energy. Superb."

"The 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Chaumes wafts from the glass with an inviting bouquet of peonies, sweet red berries, orange rind, raw cocoa and spices. Medium to full-bodied, pretty and expressive, the wine is lively and charming on the palate, with a delicate core of perfumed fruit and melting tannins, concluding with a long and precise finish."
