    Given how irregular many of the M‚o wines are in '97, I was pleasantly surprised by the elegance, purity and finesse of their Richebourg. The nose offers excellent detail with none of the overripe, roasted character found in so many wines and the sleekly muscled medium full flavors are round, ripe and supple with fine tannins and excellent length. There isn't a great deal of complexity by the standards of a first-class Richebourg but this aspect may very well develop with a few more years of bottle age. In short, while not a great M‚o Richebourg, it certainly is a lovely wine by any standard and one that has developed a good deal more slowly then I originally envisioned. Consistent notes.

    Healthy medium red. Raspberry, cherry, minerals, licorice and flowers on the nose. Quite fine and fresh in the mouth; light on its feet. Very good acidity. The longest but least evolved of these '97s, finishing with a sappy cherry flavor.

  • 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.
