2009 Jerome Chezeaux Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Chaumes

A lovely, transparent violet color with a dark core. Violets and cherries on the expressive nose. Finely etched fruit on the palate, black cherries, strawberries, a hint of blackberry. Burst of cherry fruit on the mid-palate. Fine tannins, beautifully balanced acidity. Picks up weight with time in the glass. Finishes long and elegant. Just lovely. Drink next 6 to 8 years. "A"
