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.
Mild reduction presently overshadows the fruit. Like the Bourgogne the middle weight flavors are cool, pure and vibrant and they also possess a relatively refined mouth feel, all wrapped in a clean, dry and focused finale. This would also make a good choice for an upper level house red. Tasted: Jan 2017; Drink: 2019+; Issue: 65; Rating 87-90 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
