Goedhuis, December 2012
At the end of the village below Malconsorts and La Tache, this is a very good vineyard, expressing strikingly rich red currant fruit flavours. A very poised wine with good levels of acidity and strong rounded tannins. A wine with a long intense finish.
Burghound, January 2013,
(from a 1.2 ha parcel – Méo told me that his Chaumes is always fine and easy in character and he has been attempting to extract more material from his grapes in the last few vintages). An exuberantly spicy nose offers up notes of plum, violet, purple fruit and a hint of wood toast. The lush and beguilingly textured medium weight flavors possess good concentration and a fleshy palate impression before terminating in a firm and persistent finish where the fine-grained tannins are well-integrated. This is a bit more structured than it usually is. Drink 2021+

Light and lively and energetic. Hint of walnut skins too. Drink 2017-2027
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.
