Goedhuis, December 2012
A very harmonious Vosne Romanée, with ripe intense red fruit flavours, it is broad and concentrated with very good length.
Burghound, January 2013,
(from a .70 ha parcel, most of which are 70+ year old vines). An exuberantly spicy nose of cassis and liqueur of red berry fruit is liberally laced with clove, anise, sandalwood and soy nuances. The robust and tautly muscular flavors exude a fine minerality on the wonderfully intense (again, almost painfully so), delineated and driving finish that goes on and on. While it isn’t yet quite as harmonious, 2011 is a vintage where the Brûlées may be just as good as the Cros. Note however that this is very firmly structured and will need plenty of cellar time.

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.
The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
