    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Méo Camuzet, Clos de Vougeot, Grand Cru, 2016

    Very concentrated and brooding. Surly in character yet beautifully silky in texture. Dark fruits of wild bramble and black cherry, hints of creme de mûre. A little quiet initially but clearly profound and large scale. A monunental wine that will demand patience. Méo-Camuzet have brilliantly situated vines in Clos de Vougeot, one big parcel is just in front of the Château at the north-west end of the vineyard. A third of the vines were planted in the 1920s, a third 1960s and the rest are 20-30 years-old. The wine can withstand a large proportion of new oak during its elevage in barriques, which in this case is 85%.

    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.
