Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Méo Camuzet, Chambolle Musigny, Les Feusselottes, 1er Cru, Frére et Soeurs, 2009

Frequently on the more robust side of Chambolle, this is intense and has a firm but fine tannic backbone, but is also remarkably slick, with notes of dark berries, cassis, crème de muˆre together with earthy and sweet spice undertones. A Chambolle of edge and power.

ABV:
14%
89-92/100
Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

(as with the Cras, Meo buys grapes and does the vineyard work here, under a contract that Allexant described as like a metayage or fermage Good dark red. Ripe, fruit-dominated aromas of dark cherry, blackberry and spices, perked up by a hint of wild herbs. Lusher in texture than the Cras, with enticing red fruit flavors framed by harmonious acidity and lifted by a chalky quality. Finishes juice, pure and dry, with dark cherry fruit and serious tannic spine. There's deeper soil here than in the Cras, notes Allexant.

Méo Camuzet

It is incredible to think that up for many years the Domaine was selling its entire production in bulk to négociants. These years of wasted potential were put to rights when the domaine produced its first bottling in 1983 under the guidance of Jean Méo. He was succeeded by his son Jean-Nicolas in 1985 who, by 1988, had taken back plots being leased out elsehwere. Henri Jayer, who had long farmed some of the family's parcels, mentored Jean-Nicolas for several years. Key features of winemaking here are de-stalking of grapes (but where necessary stalks are added back in to fermentations depending on vintage and vineyard) pre-fermentation maceration and ageing in 50-100% new oak depending on the wine. These are intense, deep, silkily-textured Burgundies that demand time.
