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.
The wines that come from the vineyards bearing the Bourgogne appellation and situated in the prestigious villages of the Côte de Nuits share the characteristics of freshness, structure and even strength.
A super fresh and bright nose features notes of various red berries and a whisper of earth that is picked up by the attractively textured and vibrant flavors that possess an unusually refined mouth feel relative to what is typical for the genre. I like the complexity and there is enough structure to suggest that this should keep well too. Recommended as it would make for a good all-around house red.
