Pretty, ripe and very pure spicy and earthy red fruit aromas that display moderate secondary development plus a touch of menthol introduce relatively sweet, full, supple and rich flavors that are supported by still prominent medium weight tannins that are much better integrated into the finish than are those of the Cros Parantoux. This is unusually fine for the vintage and offers exceptionally good balance and excellent length and unlike the Cros, the sense of harmony here will permit this to continue to age gracefully without drying out, at least not anytime soon. Allen Meadows, Burghound Jul01,2008
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.
