Vosne-Romanée 1er-Cru 'Les Chaumes' is located at the foot of "la Tâche” and "les Malconsorts”, in a slightly deeper clay soil. Domaine Méo-Camuzet possess two plots of a total surface area of about 4 acres. With its classic eastward orientation and good supply of water, it is a fairly "solar” vineyard which cannot be considered as a late ripener.
The years of the plantings of the vines are fairly different: the late 50's for one part and during the 70's for the other. The older part is almost the more productive and gives fairly large cylindrical grapes. The sugar-acid balance is excellent. The younger part gives smaller grapes, sometimes even small grapes, but riper with less structure.
There is much finesse and elegance in this wine, very typical of the Vosne-Romanée appellation. Fullness and charm coexist here, in a wine which is not as awe-inspiring as the superb crus, "les Brûlées” and "Cros Parantoux”, but which is easy to drink and will quickly seduce you.
