Méo Camuzet, Marsannay, Rouge, Frére et Soeurs, 2017

Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Méo Camuzet, Marsannay, Rouge, Frére et Soeurs, 2017

Lovely Marsannay. Supple and fine in shape, soft red fruits with notes of plums and damsons. Ripe and elegant. Along with the Fixin this ages for less time in oak barriques than the other Meo-Camuzet wines, between a maximum of 10 to 12 months, and there is very little new oak to preserve the charming fruity freshness of the wine.

ABV:
13%
85-87/100

The 2018 Marsannay Village is a cru that Jean-Nicolas Méo told me he is considering returning under the domaine since he is finding it difficult to find good sources. It has a pleasant bouquet of cassis and blueberry fruit, nicely defined and floral in style. The palate is quintessential Marsannay with quite sturdy tannins and plenty of blue fruit, although I would like to see more delineation toward the finish.

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.
