Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    This vineyard is now written in Vosne Romanée folklore following the feats of the great Henri Jayer at the end of the last century. Not an easy vineyard to work, but the rewards are exceptional. A millefeuille of flavours, from tayberries and blueberries, to violets, it jumps out of the glass with its great brightness, purity and energy. A harmonious balance between sweetness and minerality. Truly sensational, this lives up to its reputation.

    The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Cros Parantoux 1er Cru, which was picked before the Richebourg, has a very intense bouquet of blackberry, blueberry and raspberry plus crushed stone and crushed violet petals that gains vigor with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and very harmonious, featuring touches of white pepper and crushed stone, wonderful focus and fine structure toward the persistent finish. This is excellent and really exposes the pedigree of the terroir, but I agree with Méo that it is one of the most approachable Cros Parantoux in recent years. 2023 - 2045

    An exuberantly spicy, slightly fresh and decidedly cooler nose combines with floral nuances, and in particular rose petal, to add both elegance and complexity to the pure dark currant and cherry scents. There is lovely energy and delineation to the caressing, sleek and precise, indeed even chiseled, medium weight flavors that possess very fine depth on the well-balanced and mineral-inflected finale where the only nit is again a hint of warmth. This is also most impressive and while it doesn't have the sheer depth of the Richebourg at present, it's possible that with extended aging it might. Drink 2036+. Don't miss! Outstanding

    Jean-Nicolas Méo has really excelled himself with the 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Au Cros-Parantoux, which he notes was picked a little earlier than usual, and produced only moderate yields this year. Unwinding in the glass with complex aromas of smoky berry fruit, cassis and spices, complemented by suggestions of grilled squab, blood orange and espresso, the wine is full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with exquisite structural finesse, terrific concentration and lively acids that render it at once dynamic and complete. This is a brilliant young wine in the making.

    A totally even purple across the piece. The oak is present but sitting cheerfully alongside the ripe fruit. This has dimensions that the other wines have not reached. Just enough red notes mixing in with the black. Waves of flavour! A darling of mine in 2018 says Jean-Nicolas and for the first time in barrel I find this wine to be an absolute knock-out. It came in under 14% and is going to be a quite brilliant wine in the long term.

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.

Vosne-Romanée

The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
