Region: Burgundy Grapes: Pinot Noir First Glance: Delicate, Floral, Black Fruited, Fine but Firm
The Wine: Domaine Méo-Camuzet is one of Burgundy’s most famed estates. Up until 1988, most of the holdings were leased out, however now Jean-Nicolas Méo and Christian Faurois are making some of Cote d’Or’s best wine. Farming organically throughout their esteemed plots; they boast four Grand Cru and ten Premier Cru sites across Nuits St George and Vosne-Romanée.
Slightly reductive to open, however it blows off to reveal intense black fruits and subtle smokey notes. On the palate it is both firm and fine, with lots of freshness and vibrancy - typical Chambolle prettiness of purple flowers, with subtle grip and a long finish.
