The 2019 Vosne-Romanée Les Petit Monts 1er Cru has a wonderful, pure, elegant bouquet of vivid red berry fruit infused with perfumed rose petals; hints of orange blossom emerge with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, very harmonious and superbly structured, with seamlessly integrated oak. Who made the best Les Petit Monts this vintage? Hands up... Yes, it's you, Maxime Chuerlin.
A decidedly ripe nose of plum, dark currant and mocha nuances evidences a lovely plethora of spice elements. The intense and relatively concentrated flavors possess a taut muscularity and a subtle minerality along with lovely depth while offering excellent length on the lingering finish that plays right on the edge of rusticity. This is certainly ripe but remains balanced and a wine that should age.
