    The 2018 Richebourg Grand Cru has a much more imposing bouquet compared to the Cros Parantoux, the intense blackberry, bilberry, crushed stone and clove scents gently unfurling in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins and enormous depth, yet gentle in terms of grip. There is a sense of symmetry on the finish here, along with superb length, yet this will clearly require more bottle age than the Cros Parantoux. 2027 - 2050

    This too is aromatically quite reserved with reticent aromas of overtly floral-suffused dark berry fruit that is also cut with spiced Asian pekoe tea and sandalwood nuances. The outsized, intense and tautly muscular flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration where the sappy dry extract helps to buffer the very firm but not hard tannins shaping the explosively long, powerful and beautifully balanced finish. This is a veritable 'wow' wine. Drink 2038+. Don't miss!

    Score: 94-96+

    The 2018 Richebourg Grand Cru is a little more backward than the premiers crus that preceded it, opening in the glass with notes of strawberry compote, cherries, raw cocoa, espresso roast and a lavish application of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and enveloping, with a textural, concentrated profile underpinned by succulent acids. My sense is that this will come together very positively with further élevage. There's certainly a sweetness to the fruit here that recalls Méo's very successful 2003 vintage, as well as the freshness and structure to ensure balance.

    Score: 96-98

    The Méo plot is often cooler and fresher but not in the warm years. The vines are from the 1950s. There is a huge volume of fruit here if not quite as immediately seductive as some of the 1ers crus. First comes a little touch of barrel toast, then a sweet layer of black fruit, before something notably firmer beneath. As multi-layered as Cros Parantoux but not quite so integrated yet.

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.
