    ($98) Red-ruby. Knockout nose combines raspberry, game, minerals and roasted, smoky oak. Dense, fat, superripe and complex, with notes of sweet berries, toffee, meat and smoke. This has terrific texture and depth. Opens out nicely on the back end, which features firm tannins and subtle persistence.

    Ruby-colored, the 1999 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Boudots has an earthy spice and sweet cherry-scented nose. It is delicate, light to medium-bodied, and possesses pretty, nuanced cherry and black currant flavors. It has a slight hollowness in its mid-palate and a firm finish. Drink it over the next 5 years.

    This caresses with pure blackberry and cassis fruit and alluring cinnamon and toast notes. Full, plush texture and long, suave finish. 225 cases made.

    Big, tannic and concentrated and relatively reserved with buckets of Vosne spice and powerful, focused, penetrating flavors that offer plenty of personality and authority. Beautifully balanced and offers a beguiling combination of earth and spice with the barest trace of finishing rusticity. Robust, long and intense.

    Vinfolio purchase, held 1 year. Opened for 6 hours, not decanted. Beautiful evolution. Wine was ready to go and never faded over 3 hours. Ruby. Smoky cherry, leather, and spice. Nice concentration and depth. Acidity is not overwhelmingly intense. A balanced, structured and pure pinot. Elegant, silky, long. Wonderful. Long life ahead. I am sold on slow-rolling 10 year old firm wines like this. It showed better than I could hope. And when my wife holds but can not, does not drink the wine, it's a big sign. Aux Boudots vineyard borders Vosne Romanee, and is closer to La Tache than to other NSG vineyards.

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.
