Meo-Camuzet Corton Clos Rognet Grand Cru 2013
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.
Once again strong reduction completely dominates the fruit. There is outstanding richness to the relatively pliant broad-shouldered flavors that possess excellent verve before concluding in a lingering, focused and solidly powerful finish. I have always found the Rognets to be the sleeper grand cru among Méo's big boys as the old vines always seem to provide super density of underlying material. However in 2013 this is less concentrated than it usually is and thus my range offers the benefit of the doubt that the mid-palate will flesh out with time in bottle. Score: 92-94 Points.
