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.
Very mild reduction shaves the top notes off of the nose but it seems clear that the underlying fruit is ripe. There is ample earth character to the delicious and velvety medium weight flavors that terminate in a slightly rustic and youthfully austere finish. I very much like the depth on the balanced finale and this is certainly a solid effort for a villages level Fixin. Score: 87-90 Points.
