Domaine Meo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanée 2017
This gorgeous Vosne Romanée is composed of 75% in Les Barreaux with 35+ year old vines, and 25% from 60+ year old vines in Aux Communes, 100% estate parcels with clay and limestone soils. Méo-Camuzet is one of the most celebrated domaines of the Côte d'Or, located in the heart of prestigious Vosne-Romanée. The domaine boasts 14 hectares of land in some of the most spectacular appellations and crus of Burgundy. Founder Étienne Camuzet was not only a passionate vigneron, but a full-time politician, and spent most of his time in Paris, representing the Côte d'Or. By the time his daughter had inherited the estate, she found herself with no successors, so the estate was passed down to her closest relative, Jean Méo. Jean was also deeply involved in national politics-he served as a member of Charles DeGaulle's cabinet. Consequently, he, too, had to direct the domaine from afar. In the early 1980s, as many of the métayeurs were starting to retire, it became clear that the domaine needed a new direction.

BurghoundA spicy, pure and ultra-fresh nose combines notes of various dark berries with those of spice and sandalwood. The delicious middle weight flavors are a bit more refined than usual with good mid-palate sap that imparts a velvety texture to the lingering, complex and balanced finale. A quality Vosne villages. 89-91
Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Vosne-Romanée Village offers up aromas of spicy plums, smoked meats and wild berries, framed by a touch of toasty new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, with a deep core of sapid fruit structured around velvety tannins and succulent acids, concluding with a pure, lingering finish. 88-90
