    A notably ripe and distinctly oaky nose that has now gone almost completely secondary in character precedes very round, supple, even forward middle weight flavors that possess reasonably good acid balance but the oak resurfaces on the finish. While certainly agreeable and offering acceptable depth, it would be fair to say that this is not especially distinguished even in the context of what is increasingly proving to be a lackluster vintage.

    Medium red. Plum, red cherry and a whiff of herbs on the nose, plus an exotic suggestion of honey that calls to mind Bandol. A bit less fragrant than the '97 M‚o-Camuzet Nuits-Saint-Georges Boudots. Somewhat reserved black cherry and licorice flavors. Has the fat of the vintage but is not yet displaying much personality. Finishes with slightly dry tannins but very good persistence.

    Rich, round and supple, with vanilla and coffee augmenting the cherry flavors that persist through the medium finish. An attractive style.

    The medium to dark ruby-colored 1997 Clos Vougeot exhibits huge ripeness in its otherwise tight aromatics. This is a big, broad, sur-maturite-laced wine, with flavors reminiscent of a compote of red and black fruits. Suave, medium to full-bodied, possessing lovely intensity and a spice-laden finish, this wine should be consumed over the next 6-7 years.

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.
