This lovely wine highlights the brilliance of this steep-sloped vineyard, which always achieves excellent ripeness. Lots of loganberry flavours, deliciously intense and full, this has amazing concentration without being excessive. Very complex, it will give huge pleasure.

The 2014 Vosne Romanée 1er Cru Aux Brûlées has a stately, well defined and composed bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. Think of a duchess walking into a ballroom. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline entry. This is clearly nicely composed with good structure, finely balanced with a chalky textured finish that lingers in the mouth. This is a serious Aux Brûlées from Jean-Nicolas Méo. Drink 2016-2038

This is also sufficiently reduced to prevent a proper evaluation of the nose. This is a formidably powerful and muscular effort with plenty of punch and minerality on the middle weight plus flavors that are blessed with plenty of dry extract before culminating in a beautifully long and remarkably complex finale. This is both stylish and classy but make no mistake, it’s going to need plenty of bottle age to realize its full, and considerable, potential. Dont miss 93-95! Drink 2029+

Lovely depth and intensity to the aroma. Sweet and vibrant and juicy. There is a happy energy here, but there is tension under the palate. Focused and pure and straight and quite powerful on the finish. The finish is long and taut.
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.
