Notes
(negociant wine)) Good bright, deep ruby-red. Lovely perfumed aromas of black fruits, minerals and violet. Pure, aromatic and complex in the mouth, hinting at bitter cherry and dark chocolate. Broad, dense, rich and sweet, with the chocolatey character complicated by a saline nuance on the finish, which features solid, building tannins and very good ripeness.

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.
