This has evolved quite well since I last reviewed it and it has now opened considerably to reveal seductively ripe and slightly rustic earthy crushed red berry fruit and dried herb notes that complement well the delicious, spicy and intense flavors that offer plenty of Nuits character and excellent length. This could easily be approached now as the natural austerity is buffered by the mouth coating richness but it there appears to be another year or two of upside potential and I would suggest letting it slumber for a bit longer even though it would be no crime to open one now.

The bright ruby-colored 2000 Nuits-St.-Georges Murgers exhibits a nose of spicy red cherries and hints of cedar. Plush, velvety-textured, and ample, it is a medium-bodied, broad, gorgeously-textured wine. Sweet layers of spicy red fruits are found throughout its extroverted flavor profile and voluptuous finish. It should be consumed over the next 5-6 years Pierre Rovani-Wine Advocate # 147 Jun 2003

Rot was present, but not an overwhelming problem if you were willing to do what was necessary. The other interesting point is that the grapes had exceedingly thin skins.” Wine Advocate.June, 2003

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.
