Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2018

    This is a little paler in colour than 1er Cru Cros Parantoux and has a more open aroma. There is a sophisticated touch of malty oak reduction overlaying the beautiful fruit tones. The palate is supremely elegant, and the tannins show the finesse of the Richebourg site, whose pliant fruit and quiet power suit the 2017 vintage style with extraordinary success. As is the case with the greatest of grands crus, its layers unfurl in magnificent splendour. That it merely hints at its future greatness right now bodes for a truly exciting maturation.

    Score: 94-96

    The 2017 Richebourg Grand Cru has a much more expressive and open bouquet compared directly with the Cros Parantoux: red berry fruit, undergrowth, crushed stone, tobacco and plenty of ground pebbles here. This is wonderfully detailed. The medium-bodied palate delivers fine-grained tannin. Not as deep as other vintages of Richebourg that I have encountered from the domaine, being lighter on its feet, yet it still displays good grip and a hint of graphite that lingers on the finish. Excellent. 2024 - 2045

    Score: 93-96

    This too is firmly reduced though the supporting wood is less visible. There is impressive intensity to the equally sleek big-bodied flavors that possess a gorgeous mouthfeel thanks once again to the plentiful sappy dry extract that coats the mouth on the hugely long and impeccably well-balanced finale. Like the Cros, this very stylish and classy effort will also need to develop better depth though the underlying material is present for that to occur. Drink 2035+

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.
