  • Goedhuis, January 2014

    A stunning blend of soft raspberry and strawberry fruits. A wine full of finesse with a very feminine core. An irresistible style with delicacy and harmony.

  • Neal Martin, December 2013, Score: 90-92

    The 2012 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Chaumes has a very pure and fragrant bouquet with fresh strawberry and Morello fruit, fine mineralité and a sense of elegance. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins on the entry, the fruit starting off red at the front of the mouth but finishing black with tautness and briskness. Compact at the moment, this will mellow out nicely if left 5 or 6 years in the cellar.

  • Burghound, January 2015, Score: 92

    (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 is composed primarily of ripe black pinot fruit and violet aromas. There is a refined mouth feel to the middle weight flavors that are supported by ripe and fine tannins before culminating in a linear and tight but balanced finish that delivers excellent depth and length. This is better than it usually is as there is more underlying material. Note that this lovely effort should be approachable young. Drink 2020+

  • Burghound, January 2014, Score: 90-92

    There is enough reduction to flatten the nose. There is a refined mouth feel to the middle weight flavors that are supported by ripe and fine tannins before culminating in a linear and tight but balanced finish that delivers fine depth and length. Drink 2020+

  • Jancis Robinson, January 2014, Score: 16+

    A bit indistinct on the nose with sweetness and ripe berries on the palate but less definition than the Marsannay arguably! Wait for this perhaps. At the moment it's a tad dull. Drink 2019-2027

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

Vosne Romanée

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.
