    Deep red-ruby. Explosive, oakier aromas of black cherry, smoke, espresso and licorice; smells like barrels with a heavier toast. Great sweetness in the mouth; dense, silky, oaky and large-scaled. Seems more heavily extracted than the wines vinified in Meo cellar. Finishes with tougher (oak) tannins. Still, a strong showing for this wine, reportedly made from yields under 30 hectoliters per hectare.

    (Three magnums opened over the past eight months.) Rich, broad, deep and ripe; flashy and perhaps slightly stewed. Enormous palate presence. The 100% new oak barely competes today with the weight of the fruit and the mineral backbone. Not for purists but serious nonetheless.

    Off barnyard smell when first opened which blew off after about 10 minutes. Lots of grip, very cherry and earthy. Color starting to lighten up. Not cracking up but beginning the downward slope -- I would not wait to drink

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.
