  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($150; this cuvee had been racked a week prior to my visit) Deep ruby-red. Complex aromas of blackberry, minerals, cracked pepper, roasted herbs, spices, tar and bitter chocolate. Superripe yet cool, with exotic berry and menthol flavors that are currently a bit disassociated. Comes across as quite structured, but I suspect it has been hardened by the recent sulfuring. But this boasts very good flavor intensity, firm tannins and excellent length.

    A blast of pure cassis and blackberry, this inky, purple Pinot Noir coats the mouth with sweet, ripe fruit, covering the dense tannins until the finish, where they offer a tactile sensation but remain well-integrated with the fruit. 125 cases made.

    The first wine to be noticeably marked by its wood, framing extremely ripe yet still elegant earthy black berry and raspberry fruit and this is very finely textured despite the firm tannic spine that helps deliver plenty of finishing punch. The slightly warm finish is dusty, mouth coating and lingers in the mouth.

  • 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.
