Why you'll love it?
Meo-Camuzet is one of the most celebrated domaines of the Cote d’Or, located in the heart of prestigious Vosne-Romanee. The domaine boasts fourteen hectares of land in some of the most spectacular appellations and crus of Burgundy. The vineyard land in Burgundy is highly parceled out among families, which makes it rare for anyone to have enough vines to be able to bottle one grand cru, let alone the six that the Meos have.
Healthy dark red with ruby highlights. Very ripe, slightly liqueur-like aromas of kirsch, blackberry, licorice and minerals. Wonderfully fine-grained and suave, with almost shocking acidity giving penetration and lift to its highly concentrated flavors of black fruits, licorice and stony minerality. An intriguing salty element adds another dimension. Finishes with huge but fully buffered tongue-coating tannins and outstanding length. This youthfully tight wine has the scale and structure for a long life in bottle.
