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 pungent and slightly grassy nose of straw and citrus merges into fresh and bright flavors that possess good richness and a light minerality on the textured and tangy finish. This has good character and plenty of personality. Worth a look. Tasted: Jul 01, 2009 Score: 86 Drink: now+ Comments: Outstanding Top value Issue 35; Allen Meadows; Burghound
