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.
There is no reductive funk here with the discreetly spicy aromas of plum, cassis and sandalwood. The middle weight flavors possess a suave and velvety mouth feel and are blessed with good levels of dry extract that imparts a seductive texture to the sappy and balanced finale. Despite the seeming approachability of the mid-palate there is sufficient firmness to the structure to make clear that this will need the better part of a decade to arrive at its peak.
