Domaine Armelle et Bernard Rion, Vosne-Romanée Les Chaumes 1er Cru 1999

Rion Vosne Chaumes 1990Fifteen years on tasting.

Crimson.  Dewy red fruit with a nod towards coulis.  Affable and sweet with a touch of the stems.  Toasted spice and earth.  Some tannin.  Finishes positively, with soft-centered, Chaumes minerality.  Avuncular in style but it stands for something: forthright, correct Chaumes.  Drinking well now.  Now – 2020.
