Méo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanée "les Chaumes" Premier Cru 2012
92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Chaumes has a very pure and fragrant bouquet with fresh strawberry and Morello fruit, fine mineralite and a sense of elegance. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins on the entry, the fruit starting off red at the front of the mouth but finishing black with tautness and briskness. Compact at the moment, this will mellow out nicely if left 5 or 6 years in the cellar.

Bright medium red. Sexy aromas of raspberry and chocolate accented by pepper and herbs. Juicy and intense, with harmonious acidity giving cut and energy to the raspberry and floral flavors. Finishes firm and vibrant, with very good lift.
92 Points Antonio Galloni's Vinous
The 2012 Vosne-Romanée Les Chaumes is striking in its beauty. Fresh, vibrant and beautifully layered, the 2012 boasts gorgeous depth and inner perfume, not to mention terrific overall balance. Bright saline notes support the tense, salivating finish. All the elements fall into place in a striking, absolutely impeccable wine. I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted at Méo-Camuzet this year. In particular, these are some of the most intense, mineral-driven 2012s I came across.
