A wonderfully spicy, sexy and seductive nose of a range of black and blue fruit aromas and the range of spices is sufficiently broad that on the nose at least, this could easily be mistaken for a top flight Vosne. The flavors are slightly fresher and brighter than those of the Chaumes with a fullness and density that speaks clearly of the underlying power and punch as this is a big wine with plenty of muscle on the hugely long finish. Great potential here. Allen Meadows, Burghound Jan01,2007

The 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Aux Boudots displays an alluring sweetness of black cherry, and nutmeg, and cocoa powder. Yet for all of its obvious, generous ripeness and expansiveness, silken texture, it retains a fine fruit edge. Meat and minerals may come later. With ravishing, seductive length, it is an early charmer that might also be a keeper. but plan to revisit and relish it in 2-3 years. David Schildknecht-Wine Advocate # 170 Apr 2007

His production, however, is being boosted these days by a range of negociant wines under the label “Meo-Camuzet Frere et Soeur” (marked “F&S” in the listing above). The top wines had been assembled in tank and sulfured in preparation for bottling, and were suffering a bit on account of this. Wine Advocate.April, 2007

Despite a history that stretches back to the beginning of the 20th century, Méo-Camuzet is a relative newcomer to domaine-bottling, which started here in 1985. Prior to this, the Camuzet vineyards were leased out to sharecroppers and much of it sold to negociants. One such sharecropper was the legendary Henri Jayer , who acted as a consultant to the domaine.

The holdings are significant: grand crus Richebourg, Clos Vougeot and Echézaux and excellent sites in Vosne-Romanée including Cros Parantoux, Les Brulées and Les Chaumes. Three vineyards on the Vosne-Romanée side of Nuits St Georges: Boudots, Murgers and Bas de Combe complete the Côte de Nuits holdings with 1.38 hectares of village Vosne-Romanée. The domaine also has more than a hectare of grand cru Corton in the Côte de Beaune.

The style here is a full one, and Henri Jayer surely still an inspiration. The vineyards are worked organically, and the wines see up to 100% new oak, which integrates perfectly with some bottle age. The premier cru Vosne-Romanées are both from vineyards at the top of the slope, as is the Echézeaux, and these are lifted, mineral expressions of Vosne.
