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.
Fairly strong reduction presently renders the nose difficult to assess. Otherwise there is good richness and volume to the delicious, round, suave and sophisticated medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a moderately firm finish. This is not especially complex today but the underlying material appears to be such that more depth will almost certainly develop and my projected range implicitly assumes that it will.
