  • Burghound | Rating: 93

    A deft touch of wood frames highly spiced black berry and cherry fruit aromas trimmed in hints of underbrush and warm earth that complement the very rich, refined and admirably concentrated flavors that are both complex and delicious, all wrapped in a vibrant and velvety finish. This is quite firm, dense and serious but beautifully balanced and the '05 is one of the best vintages that I have seen for the M‚o Chaumes. Simply great potential for development over the medium term, which is to say over the next decade.

    Bright medium ruby-red. Pure aromas of blackberry, licorice and violet. Ripe, dense and sweet, with firm underlying minerality giving definition to the dark fruit and chocolate flavors. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins. Meo believes this may turn out to be his best Chaumes to date.

    The 2005 Vosne-Romanee Les Chaumes displays some of the most bitterly-concentrated of vintage-typical black fruits, along with notes of game on the nose. Firm but ripe and rich in the mouth, with cassis, elderberry and beet root accented by salty, stony minerality and savory soy and meat juice character, this finishes with striking length, but will need a decade in the cellar, I suspect, becoming silky and more generous.

  • 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.
