Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91-93

Blackberries and cassis can be discerned in the nose of the big, bold 2001 Clos Vougeot. An inky, enormously deep, medium-bodied wine, it slathers the palate with intensely flavored black cherries, a myriad spices, juniper berries, toast, and hints of licorice. Powerful, fleshy, and fresh, it has a sumptuous finish that exhibits some road tar-like flavors.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($160) Good red-ruby. Musky, expressive nose melds black cherry, minerals, smoke and animal fur. Fat, rich and broad, but with restrained sweetness; possesses more stuffing for its tannins than the Corton. In fact, the finish is impressively broad and suave. Nicely balanced Clos Vougeot.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Exotic and seductive, a full-bodied, dark-colored, fabulously aromatic wine. Plenty of floral, blackberry, black cherry, cassis and wild raspberry flavors along with some subtle oak and mineral. Long, balanced finish.

Burghound | Rating: 90

(this was also concentrated by 4 to 5%) A complete register change with a decidedly different aromatic expression of austere, understated yet high-toned and very ripe red and black fruits trimmed with earth and a trace of oak spice followed by round, rich, supple flavors that offer good complexity but finish with the same austerity displayed on the nose. Backward but not hard and as one would expect from a young Clos de Vougeot from a tight vintage, this will require 7 to 10 years to begin drinking well.

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.
