Bursting from the glass with scents of ripe plums, cherries and orange rind, complemented by subtle hints of smoked meats and chocolate, the 2018 Vosne-Romanée Les Chalandins is medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping, its ample core of succulent fruit framed by fine-grained tannins. This is a charming, exuberant Vosne-Romanée that's already drinking well.
Jacques Cacheux began making wine in the 1950s. In 1994 he retired and handed over the reins to his son Pascal who has propelled this domaine into the top rank of Vosne producers in the last 6 years. The domaine has 5 hectares of vines in Vosne Romanée, Echézeaux and Nuits-St-Georges. The grapes are totally destemmed and then macerated for between 8-10 days. The wines are then matured in oak, 100% new in the Premiers and Grand Crus, and are then bottled without any filtering or fining. Pascal Cacheux produces elegant, silky wines that, whilst eminently approachable when young, have the ability to age gracefully as well.
