Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Concentrated black cherry and black currant aromas and flavors mark this rich, full-bodied Pinot, whose purity of fruit is matched by a phalanx of ripe, integrated tannins. The flavor intensity is almost kirschlike. Fine length, but needs time to resolve its tannins.

Burghound | Rating: 93

A discreet background touch of wood frames an earthy, slightly gamy nose that leads to ripe, rich, full-bodied and moderately dense flavors that display the classic young Clos de Vougeot quality of an austere backward finish. I like the tannins here as they're finer than usual and this finishes with real freshness and verve. The best Méo Clos de Vougeot since the spectacular '85 and every bit as good as the '05 if distinctly different in character. Note that the '02 is still very, very backward but there is huge upside development potential present.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($185) Medium-deep red-ruby. Perfumed aromas of black cherry and flowers. Fine-grained and vibrant in the mouth, with nicely delineated flavors of black fruits, licorice and orange peel. Rich but dry and classic, with lovely balancing acidity and a very long finish. This is between 13.5% and 14% alcohol but conveys an almost delicate impression. Built to age. The 2002s started to open up in December of 2003 and to become much less severe, noted Meo.

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.
