    A light to medium-bodied wine, the 2001 Nuits-St.-Georges Murgers' aromas reveal sumptuous ripeness. This jammy black cherry and grilled oak-scented effort broaden in the mouth to reveal a lush red fruit-filled character. Its lengthy finish is dominated by grilled oak, which kept the score from being higher.

    Good red-ruby. Reduced nose offers black raspberry, espresso, leather and smoky oak. Sweet, fat and ripe in the middle, but today the wine's wood tannins dry the finish. Offers very good flavor intensity, but the Boudots is more classic.

    Tannic but full of gorgeous blackberries, cassis and raspberries. Firm and muscular, black in color, an extracted red that's very oaky but might come around with some cellaring.

    This remains relatively primary with notably ripe black fruits with an intensely earthy character and ample spice notes that lead to solidly structured and nicely concentrated flavors that culminate in a mouth coating, sappy and complex finish. This is very Nuits in underlying character but the concentration and finishing complexity are most appealing. I like the way this is evolving and it is on track to reach its majority right around 10 years of age.

  • 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.
