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.
Is this a wine which expresses the Cistercian rigour which gave birth to it? No, its image is rather that of a refined gentleman: the grapes mature early here, but still give wines of great finesse, with a lace-like texture which lines the palate, and superb length.
The Review: Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy - 93-95pts "A medium crimson purple in colour. The bouquet is attractive rather than massive. Lovely cherry fruit right through the middle then a firmer finish as the natural tannins of the Clos kick in. Proper length here as well. Drink from 2030-2038."
