Colour: Deep ruby
Aroma: Frequent black fruit aromas, does not line the palate but possesses a great deal of rectitude.
Palate: Frankness with a lot of minerality. There’s no aggressiveness in the tasting, even if a touch of acidity can be felt in the finish. This wine is pleasant thanks to its fresh and subtle nose and its direct character, refreshing and not at all heavy. A potentially long ageing period, as the acidity is always just right. It can be a little strict sometimes when the wine is young, but this phase soon passes giving way to a great deal of elegance.
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Aging: 40% aged in oak barrels
Awards: 92pts -Tim Atkin
History of Domaine Méo-Camuze
Domaine Méo-Camuzet is a wine producer located in Vosne-Romanée in the Côte de Nuits. It produces some of the most celebrated wines from the Côte d’Or from a range of grand cru vineyards, including Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot, Corton and Echézeaux. Most of Méo-Camuzet’s wines are made from Pinot Noir, and are known for their delicate aromatic concentration.
Most of the vineyards are farmed as organically as possible, but Méo-Camuzet has chosen not to be certified, in order to be able to treat vines as the vintage dictates. Along with the grand cru wines, there are several wines made from premier cru vineyards along the Côte de Nuits, as well as a number of more generic village-level and Bourgogne wines.
