    The sappy, jam-like intensity to the black fruits in Meo's 2008 Corton Clos Rognet as well as their resinous and medicinal overlay and bold accompanying tannins won't be every pinotphile's dream. But this is certainly not just a powerful Pinot but also a powerful representation of Corton minerality in its sense of stony underpinnings. A vintage-typical tartness of berry skin helps enliven the otherwise sweet, rich, yet at the same time tannic and stony finish. If you like the style and have some faith, this should I suspect lie forgotten in your cellar for the next 5-6 years and thereafter be savored over at least that long a period. But will the tannins here ' or the sharp edges (if that's an appropriate expression for he wine's tart notes) ' really 'round outƒ?_? Or ought we to some extent to see them as simply part and parcel of the vintage character? Nicolas Meo himself responded candidly that he couldn't be sure, but that he didn't for a minute doubt the sheer longevity of a wine like this.

    Medium red. Very ripe aromas of raspberry, caramel and smoky oak; comes across as slightly roasted following the Clos Vougeot. Fat on entry, then a bit disjointed in the middle, hinting at a wide range of ripeness. Offers intriguing soil tones but today the fruit is in the background. An awkward showing, as the wine's slightly roasted quality clashes with its brisk acidity.

  • 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.
