    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Méo Camuzet, Hautes Côtes De Nuits, Blanc, Clos Philibert, 2019

    Ripe nectarine fruits crispened by a citrus rind freshness and a savoury dry stone note. Expressive, rich and fruity with a good zest to it. A well placed Clos on poor soils sitting in the hills above Echezeaux, facing east / south east. Fermented in barrel and then aged in a mixture of barrel and steel tank.

    86-88/100

    The 2019 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc Clos St. Philibert came from vat and had been recently racked and unfined. It offers pretty honeysuckle and orange blossom scents on the nose. The palate is well balanced with sour lemon on the entry, moderate depth and a pleasant saline finish. Fine.

    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.
