    Goedhuis, December 2020

    This prestigious Bourgogne cuvée takes its name from the previous owner of the Château de Clos de Vougeot who gifted it to the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin. The 2019 is a superb tribute, with appealing blackberry crumble flavours. Generous, full and rich, in almost a Gevrey Chambertin style. Very long. Top-class Bourgogne.

    Score: 86-88

    The 2019 Bourgogne Côte d’Or "Cuvée Etienne Camuzet" is under the domaine branch of Méo-Camuzet, though there is also a négoce cuvée under Méo-Camuzet Frère Soeur. This is because Jean-Nicolas Méo found more finesse in a selection of their own small parcels, especially in Pommard, and elected to bottle these separately. This has a focused and delineated bouquet that, as Méo mentioned, does offer a distinct clarity of fruit. The palate is well balanced with pretty raspberry and dark cherry scents, and quite compact, especially toward the finish, but there is commendable density. Give it 12–18 months once bottled. Drink 2022 - 2028

Producer

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

When Jean-Nicolas Méo arrived in 1989 he had very big shoes to fill. Henri Jayer, arguably Burgundy’s preeminent vigneron, had managed the domaine for the previous four decades under a share-cropping agreement with the Méo family. Since then Jean-Nicolas has more than met the challenge. Following meticulous viticultural and winemaking practices he creates wonderful wines with fine levels of concentration, and today, almost three decades since his ascension, it ranks in the upper echelons of the Burgundy firmament. The majority of wines are red, ranging from Bougogne Rouge up to their ultra-famous Cros Parantoux and outstanding Richebourg. But Jean-Nicolas also makes a miniscule production of white wine. He began planting the Chardonnay for his Clos St. Philibert on steep slopes overlooking Nuit St. Georges over 25 years ago from carefully selected Chardonnay clones. Domaine Méo-Camuzet has expanded its line of 'vins de négoce' in recent years. These wines are bottled under the 'Méo-Camuzet Frères et Soeurs' label.

Region

Bourgogne

This blanket regional appellation can apply to wines throughout Burgundy (60% of the area's production) as long as they comply with regulations relating to grape type, yield and alcohol content. Reds and roses are from Pinot Noir or Gamay. Whites are Chardonnay. They are usually the most straightforward of the Burgundy wines, and as a result are the least expensive and the most approachable upon release. In the hands of a more serious producer these can represent exceptional value and quality. The wines are made with the same care and attention to detail as their grander wines. However, they may not qualify for a village or communal appellation because the vines are too young or the vineyard area is outside the appellation boundary.
