Domaine Jérome Chézeaux
Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Les Chaumes

Toponymy: “Chaumes” indicate a plot poor in vegetation, often stony and left uncultivated for a long time, before being planted with vines. These plots of fallow land made it possible to limit erosion in the event of a violent storm.

Area in production at the estate: 39 ares 43 ca

Soils: Deep clay

Locations: East Southern part, centre of Vosne-Romanée

Altitude: 250m

The harvest is carried out exclusively by hand. They carry out a first sorting in the vineyard, then on arrival at the winery on a sorting table.

The harvest is 100% destemmed. A cold maceration is carried out during the first 3-4 days out of the 18 to 21 days of vinification.

Throughout this period, daily manual remontage (punching down) and pigeage (pumping over) are practiced.

Indigenous yeasts are used exclusively, and malolactic fermentation occurs in small oak barrels during the extended ageing of the wines.

They use 30% new barrels per appellation.  The wines are bottled without filtration between 18 to 24 months after harvest.

 

Typical of Vosne-Romanée, “Les Chaumes” is characterised by its finesse and elegance. This elegant and ample wine is supported by velvet tannins. Young, it is fleshy and very aromatic.
