Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Méo Camuzet, Vosne Romanée, Aux Brulées, 1er Cru, 2005

From an 80 year old parcel of vines and aged in 100% new oak, this is exquisite, powerful and massive yet not overstated, silky tannins and crushed, ripe multi-layered fruit flavours, generous and sweet but extremely uplifting.

ABV:
13%
95+/100
Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

Saturated bright ruby-red. Knockout nose combines black raspberry, licorice, minerals, meat and smoke. Large-scaled and impressively dense, with superb energy to the dark fruit, licorice, mineral, spice and game flavors. The explosive finish is like an avalanche over the palate, driving out everything in its wake. Substantial ripe tannins are hidden by complex finishing flavors of red fruits, smoked meat and leather. For all its soil-driven wildness, this sappy, extract-rich wine is quite pristine. Should be a monumental bottle by 2020.

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.
