Vosne Romanee Les Chaumes - Meo Camuzet

75 DP 0 3 - 145
Tasting Notes for Vosne Romanee Les Chaumes - Meo Camuzet, 2005:
The 2005 Vosne-Romanee Les Chaumes displays some of the most bitterly-concentrated of vintage-typical black fruits, along with notes of game on the nose. Firm but ripe and rich in the mouth, with cassis, elderberry and beet root accented by salty, stony minerality and savory soy and meat juice character, this finishes with striking length, but will need a decade in the cellar, I suspect, becoming silky and more generous. Between the effects of drought and of localized hail (in May, before it could effect quality) Jean-Nicolas Meo reported one of his smallest-ever harvests. His production, however, is being boosted these days by a range of negociant wines under the label ┘Meo-Camuzet Frere et Soeur╬ (marked ┘F&S╬ in the listing above). The top wines had been assembled in tank and sulfured in preparation for bottling, and were suffering a bit on account of this. Wine Advocate # 170 Apr 2007

Vosne Romanee Les Malconsorts - Cathiard, Sylvain

75 IB 0 4 - 370
Tasting Notes for Vosne Romanee Les Malconsorts - Cathiard, Sylvain, 2005:
Smoked meat, ginger and cinnamon-tinged plum, cassis, and black raspberry, and brown spices mark the nose of CathiardŇs 2005 Vosne-Romanee Les Malconsorts, another of the wines that display cut and clarity of flavor along with an imposingly polished, creamy texture. The new wood introduces torrefactive, caramelized suggestions, but the wine maintains its shape and brightness right through its impressive, meat- and mineral-inflected finish. Abundant tannis are harbored deep within, make no mistake, and this should be set aside for at least 8-10 years. Ultimately, I would certainly expect it to surpass the Murgers in stature. Beginning next year Đ in consequence of the sale of Thomas-Moillard properties to Dujac and de Montille, a portion of which Cathiard rented Đ his production of Malconsorts will plummet to the level of the late 1980s, reflecting only the small parcel of this great site that he owns Wine Advocate # 171 Jun 2007
