Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    Hardly surprising for such a structured wine, this was a little closed when we tasted it, but oh! It has all the ingredients to be a very great wine indeed. It balances sweetness and generosity of fruit with myriad complexities beneath. It enters the palate with subtlety and grave and then slowly the powerful structure evolves in a way that only the greatest grands crus can. Quite simply superb.

    Score: 93-95

    The 2016 Richebourg Grand Cru has a feisty, forward and intense bouquet that maybe does not quite deliver the panache of the Cros Parantoux. It almost feels as if it has to exert itself upon the senses in order to establish its credentials, whereas you would like more effortlessness. The palate is assuredly dense and structured. Certainly, it is one of the more opaque Richebourg wines that I tasted from barrel, though at present I would be seeking a touch more finesse and precision on the sinewy finish to this burly Richebourg. I still expect it to land toward the top of my banded score. Drink 2023-2045

    Score: 94-97

    eduction presently dominates the nose though there is terrific verve and freshness to the big-bodied, tautly muscular and impressively concentrated flavors that possess an almost painful intensity on the very firmly structured finish that also delivers breathtaking length. Like the Cros it's clear that this is going to require prolonged cellaring yet there is so much dry extract that I suspect that the '16 Richebourg could be approached after only 7 to 8 years though it will very like need close to 20 to reach its full apogee. In a word, brilliant. Don't miss! Drink: 2033+

    Score: 95-97

    Bright, dark red-ruby. Heady aromas of black fruits, tart cherry stomp, licorice and violet. Wonderfully plush and fine-grained but medicinal and backward, with its flavors of black fruits, flowers and spices accented by pungent minerality. Very densely packed but even more imploded than the Cros Parantoux and more difficult to taste today. A wine with outstanding intensity and focus, as well as the medicinal reserve for a long evolution in the cellar. Firm tannins are perfectly buffered by strong material.

    Decanter, January 2018,
    Score: 94

    The Méo-Camuzet Richebourg reveals aromas of rose petal, spice, sweet black fruit and a subtle framing of new oak; the prelude to a full-bodied, ample wine with supple tannins and a succulent core of fruit. This year’s Richebourg is quite generous and open-knit, with good energy but a giving, warm personality. Drinking Window 2027 - 2045

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.
