  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    Good full, deep red. High-pitched aromas of black raspberry, dark cherry and cinders, lifted by a mineral element. Juicy, bright and suave, showing a fine-grained, almost creamy texture and impressive density to its musky flavors of dark cherry, smoke and pepper. A subtle herbal element provides lift and energy. With its lovely balance and verve, this rich wine comes across as very young. (A second bottle, which I rated 93, showed exotic aromas of candle wax and mint; a fatter, lusher texture; and impressive sweetness of fruit. Its tannins were a bit clenched but the finish displayed noteworthy energy.) As this vineyard benefits from the cooling influence of the combe , the Brulee is never too high in alcohol, notes Jean-Nicolas Meo, who added that these vines did not suffer in the heat and drought of 2003, as the vines' roots had enough water reserves |somewhere in these deep rocks.| (Incidentally, the 2003 Cros Parantoux, also poured during the November tasting, came across as darker in character and more roasted than the Brulees.)

    Ultrasilky, with blackberry, cassis and plum notes, this red is both intense and ethereal at once. It almost seems too forward and easy, yet the supporting tannins build and it takes on more spice and licorice on the finish.

    Aromatically fresher, brighter, spicier and ultimately purer notes of spicy plum nuanced with clove, anise and jasmine tea. The supple, detailed, and undeniably classy flavors are robust and powerful yet this retains a certain understated character on the superbly long finish. In short, this is a real stunner of a wine.

  • 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.
