Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Chaumes, 2011, Domaine Arnoux Lachaux
A highly spiced nose of both red and black pinot fruit is trimmed in hints of earth and sandalwood.
The very generous and impressively rich medium weight flavors are blessed with an abundance of dry extract that imparts a beguilingly seductive texture to the lush, balanced and persistent finish.
This is first rate as Chaumes rarely possesses this level of potential quality.
