Goedhuis, December 2012
Strong concentrated black fruit flavours, a full and concentrated style with hints of nutmeg spice. An impressive wine with real length and complexity.
Burghound, January 2013,
(from a huge 3 ha parcel superbly placed high on the slope, across from the Château). A relativelyexpressive nose of various red berry fruit elements has added breadth from the presence of discreet spice and plenty of pungent earth character. The delicious and unusually fine flavors possess really lovely detail and good verve if only moderate power on the balanced and beautifully persistent finish. The supporting tannins are quite fine-grained and this is more of a Clos de Vougeot of finesse and harmony rather than robust muscle and punch. Drink 2021+

Oak a little dominant on the nose. Jagged but sweet. A tiny bit of a caricature. Drink 2017-2025
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.
