Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    A powerful example of Boudots. This wine goes through an élevage of 60% new oak, fully supported by the volume of fruit. Dense aromas of liquorice, spice and Valrhona chocolate. This wine has a muscular structure and is built for the long-term.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2018,
    Score: 91-94

    This is also quite spicy with a pretty and broad-ranging array of black cherry, plum and violet aromas that are cut with warm earth wisps. The big-bodied flavors possess a bit more size, weight and evident power that are bolstered by the impressive level of sappy dry extract that also serves to buffer the lengthy if youthfully austere finale. Good juice here with excellent upside development potential. Outstanding. Drink: 2026+

  • ST

    Stephen Tanzer, January 2018,
    Score: 90-93

    Deep ruby-red. Much more reticent on the nose than the Murgers, showing more stem-influenced herbs and shoe polish than primary fruit in the early going. Then intense, penetrating and quite backward on the palate, with dark fruit flavors accented by black pepper and complicated by a hint of chocolate cake. In a distinctly serious style, finishing with a firm tannic spine and a distinct saline character.

  • DC

    Decanter, January 2018,
    Score: 92

    The Nuits Boudots reveals an attractive bouquet of rose petal, strawberry, black cherry and spice, marked by a touch of whole cluster fruit which Méo finds adds a certain seriousness to a cuvée which can otherwise be rather fruit-driven at this address. On the palate the wine is fine-grained, supple and silky, ample on the attack and then firm on the finish. Like the Murgers, this will need some time. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040

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

Nuits-Saint-Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
