For more than four centuries, the members of the Méo family have devoted themselves to growing vines and making wines. They came originally from the Burgundy village of Selongey, in the north of Côte d'Or, where today, even if the vines, alas, have disappeared, a pressing house, dating from the year 50 AD, bears witness to the presence there of Gallo-Roman winegrowers.
A sweet wine, round and charming, with a touch of minerality and a little tannin in the finish, which brings it an additional dimension. The structure can be a little dominant when the wine is young.
Once again reduction pushes the fruit to the background. There is excellent punch and detail to the equally saline-inflected but more refined medium weight flavors that possess better complexity on the lilting and well-balanced finale. This graceful effort is very Chambolle in style and it should drink well on the younger side if desired. Tasted: Jan 2017; Drink: 2022+; Issue: 65; Rating 90-92 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
