Reviews For This Wine

Burghound | 90-92

This is also reserved but slightly riper with much more elegant red pinot fruit suffused with obvious minerality and a certain coolness that leads to rich, detailed, intense and textured flavors that are supple on the attack but firm up quickly on the complex and long finish. The tannins are a good deal more sophisticated here and I very much like the overall sense of harmony and refinement. Recommended.

(negociant wine)) Good bright, deep ruby-red. Lovely perfumed aromas of black fruits, minerals and violet. Pure, aromatic and complex in the mouth, hinting at bitter cherry and dark chocolate. Broad, dense, rich and sweet, with the chocolatey character complicated by a saline nuance on the finish, which features solid, building tannins and very good ripeness.

knock-out amazing, this is drinking superb right now, everything that a perrieres should be, minerality, structure, but the '05 spiff adds a ripe coolness...and textured/layered tannins that last and last.

About This Producer

Politics has always played a significant role in the history of French wine, for better or worse, and that is especially true for Domaine Meo-Camuzet. Parliamentarian Etienne Camuzet began buying up prime blocks in Burgundy's most prized vineyards in the early 1900s, and from this land winemaker Jean-Nicolas Meo continues the domaine's tradition of producing acclaimed wines. The family's holdings read like a "who's who" of the Cote d'Or; they have plots in Richeboug, Clos de Vougeot, Corton Clos Rognet, and Echezeauz, in addition to a longer list of Premier Cru and Village-level sites. Balance is the key for Meo, both in the vineyard and the cellar. With Henri Jayer consulting on winemaking, Jean-Nicolas creates domaine wines of excellence that reflect a true "sense of place." Meo-Camuzet also has a wine merchant arm, bearing the title Meo-Camuzet Frere & Soeurs, which sources fruit from Fixin, Marsannay, Chambolle, and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
