Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

Good red-ruby. Aromas of cherry, licorice and spicy oak, plus a violet topnote. Rich, broad and fleshy, with impressive sweetness and volume for a young Clos Vougeot. Then finishes with fine, horizontal, palate-coating tannins. A very good showing.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Tannic, but the tannins are enveloped by plenty of fleshy fruit. Medium-bodied, deftly toasted with spicy oak. Bursts with some clean and pure blackberry flavors and offers a lingering, succulent, firm finish. 580 cases made.

Burghound | Rating: 89

Earthy, rich, dense and complex on both the nose and the palate with medium tannins, good supporting acidity and grand cru quality length. As is usually the case however with young Méo Clos de Vougeot, this comes across as a bit lighter than one might expect, given the pedigree and location of these vines yet this wine has also proven that if given sufficient time, it does indeed add weight and complexity. Thus, I would strongly counsel leaving this alone until at least 2006 and then drinking over the next 5 to 10 years. In short, this is a very solid if not sensational '98.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
