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 estate bottling by Meo Camuzet hails from the Clos Saint Philibert Monopole, sitting above Vosne Romanee in the Cote du Nuits. It presents with brilliant, golden-hued color, fragrant aromas of stone fruit and elegant vanilla spice, complemented by a harmonious balance of supple white fruits and minerality reminiscent of crushed stone.
A very fresh and bright nose of predominantly ripe yellow orchard fruit aromas leads to delicious, crisp and lightly mineral suffused light to barely medium weight flavors that offer good verve and finishing tang. Attractive for what this is. Tasted: Jul 01, 2008 Score: 84-86 Drink: now+ Issue 31 Allen Meadows; Burghound
