Wine Advocate: 90-92 Points

The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Chaumes felt a little closed compared to the Beaux Monts at least at this stage. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin good acidity quite spicy in the mouth although I still find more complexity and purity within the Beaux Monts. This is more saturnine so give it five years in bottle to open up.

Burghound: 88-91 Points

This is one of the relatively few wines in the line-up that exhibited much reduction but here it's enough to render the slightly woody nose unreadable today. On a more positive note the middle weight flavors also possess a relatively seductive mid-palate that also contrasts with the moderately robust and even slightly rustic finish that flashes noticeable warmth and a touch of pit fruit bitterness. As the description suggests this was pretty awkward though not fatally so.


Vinous: 89-91 Points

Good dark red. Aromas of black cherry licorice and menthol convey less lift than the Suchots. Sweet and plush on entry then rather powerful and a bit aggressive in the middle palate without coming off as dry. This wine is carrying about 13.7% alcohol higher than the Suchots but today I find it a bit medicinal and tough. The tannins build on the back end. Both this wine and the Suchots are purchased wine but I much prefer the Suchots.
