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.
A discreet and ultra-fresh nose combines notes of various dark berries, violet, lavender, spice and sandalwood nuances. Once again there is a suave mouth feel to the rich, generous and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess notably better depth on the lingering finale. This has the potential to be outstanding, indeed more so than I am used to seeing from this consistently good but rarely great terroir. Note that this should drink reasonably well early on if desired. Tasted: Jan 2017; Drink: 2023+; Issue: 65; Comments: Outstanding; Rating 90-93 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
