  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($152; 14.4% natural alcohol) Ruby-red. Nose shows almost exotic ripeness: black cherry, red berries, game, tobacco, earth and a suggestion of dried fruits. Huge, sweet and dense; a massive, superconcentrated, liqueur-like grand cru that almost too big for the mouth. Conveys an impression of lowish acidity but manages to hold its shape. Finishes with big, dusty, even tannins and impressive length. I marginally underrated this big boy last year.

    Huge wine for '99, with oak balanced by fruit. Delicious, ready to be enjoyed, with plenty of mocha, chocolate, smoke and black fruit complexity. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins.

    This is a very ripe and classically robust Corton that carries its 14.4% alcohol effortlessly and with no obvious warmth and one that I clearly underestimated from barrel as it's turned into a genuinely great example of the vineyard. Specifically, a notably ripe and hugely complex nose that is still entirely primary features notes of blueberry, raspberry, earth, underbrush and a trace of smoke that complement perfectly the rich, muscled and robust big-boned flavors brimming with so much dry extract that it renders the very firm tannins almost invisible and confers a velvety texture to the massively long finish. This is almost chewy at present yet for such a big wine, there is no sense of heaviness or lack of grace. A great Corton that will live for decades and is still very much on the way up.

  • 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.
