Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    This lovely wine combines the very best of Nuits St Georges and its neighbour Vosne Romanée. A delicious flamboyant style, sweet Black Forest fruits fill the glass, the palate is mouth-coating, opulent and rich. A crowd pleaser, this is an irresistible wine.

    The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers is bridled with a perfumed bouquet: floral and Vosne-like in style, replete with rose petal and peony scents that merge with maraschino cherries and crushed strawberry. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet ripe tannin and touches of orange zest, although it dips a little toward the finish that just needs a little more substance. Drink 2020-2030

    Score: 90-93

    A spicy and moderately earthy mix is composed by notes of red and dark cherry along with a whiff of oak. There is outstanding richness to the delicious, velvety and impressively complex middle weight plus flavors that are blessed with excellent mid-palate density, all wrapped in a focused, powerful and beautifully persistent finish. This is a pretty blend of Vosne-style spice together with Nuits-style muscle and punch. Outstanding. Drink: 2024+

    Score: 91-93

    Good dark red. Very ripe but somewhat subdued aromas and flavors of black cherry, licorice and sweet oak. Creamy-sweet and plush in the mouth, with harmonious acidity giving shape to this easygoing, rather generous wine. Finishes with a ripe dusting of tannins and a piquant suggestion of blood orange. Méo described this wine as "typical 2016 for us: creamy, soft and elegant but with depth and texture." This wine should offer early pleasure but it also has the stuffing and balance for mid-term aging.

    Méo’s Murgers offers up a bouquet of ripe black cherry, wild berries and rich forest floor, subtly framed by new oak. On the palate the wine is concentrated, full-bodied and tensile, with a firm but fine-grained chassis of tannin, juicy acids and a stony finish. This is a firmer, more structural Murgers than, say, Tremblay’s or Cathiard’s, but it should evolve nicely in the cellar. 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.
