  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

    Dark ruby-red. Black fruits, flowers, roasted meat, minerals and expensive oak on the nose. The sappiest and thickest of these young 2001s, with outstanding creamy sweetness in the middle but also superb energy and cut. This densely packed, youthfully backward wine isn't carrying any excess weight. Intense, persistent dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors outlast the firm tannins.

    Elegant, with lots of pretty aromas of flowers, black cherries, raspberries and cassis. Medium-bodied, not overly thick, it ends with a graceful, sweet-tasting, pleasant finish. Still, the tannins could use some aging to soften.

    Medium to dark ruby-colored, the 2001 Richebourg is an intense, deep offering armed with huge concentration and an extraordinarily long finish. Its dense layers of black cherries, blackberries, blueberries, and spices conquer the taster's palate. This regal wine should be drunk between 2006 and 2015.

    This is still very primary if no longer truly backward with a nose of Asian spices and predominantly red fruits plus traces of cassis and earth followed by medium weight, austere, extremely dense flavors underpinned by ripe tannins that are completely buffered by the superb palate staining sap. One can't help but be wowed by the concentrated and splendidly intense flavors that deliver absolutely outstanding length and superb acid/fruit/tannin balance. Simply dazzling potential and it honestly would not surprise me if my score were not just a touch conservative, that's just how good this is.

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.
