  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    A pretty Nuits, all silk and finesse, exhibiting blackberry and spice. Seductive as it is, there's no shortage of firm tannins and lively acidity to support the fruit. Best from 2001 through 2006.

    A still fresh nose that reflects just a hint of under ripeness leads to relatively light, round and supple flavors that are delicious, precise and vibrant but finish with a touch of dryness that risks becoming worse with time. For my taste, I would suggest drinking this now and over the next 5 years or so.

    Sweeter, fruitier nose, with a slight nutty quality. Softer and sweeter than the Vosne-Romanee, and perhaps a bit denser as well. But there very firm acidity here.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 88

    This wine reveals a ruby/purple color and a lovely nose of blueberries and black cherries. It is an expressive, rich, medium-to-full-bodied, and refined wine that has the structure of a Nuits and the opulent, spicy red and black fruit flavors of a Vosne. Interestingly, this wine has the same pH as the Vosne-Romanee yet appears deeper, richer, and is, in my view, a substantially safer bet for cellaring.

  • 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.
