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.
This is riper still as there is a liqueur-like quality to the blend of various dark berries, spice, underbrush and soft earth scents. There is both good volume and energy to the detailed middle weight flavors that deliver solid if not truly special length on the dusty, firm and mildly austere finale.
