Meo-Camuzet Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru aux Murgers 2001

Low in Stock
  • A two-star domaine as rated by Clive Coates, MW
  • Bulk of the family's vineyard was leased out to share-croppers, with significant holdings to the late legendary Henri Jayer
  • Jean-Nicholas Meo took over the domaine in 1988, having been the apprentice alongside Henri Jayer for years
  • At its maturity now, this bottle would be a perfect complement to your Meo's collection as well

Burghound: 90
"Outstanding! This remains relatively primary with notably ripe black fruits with an intensely earthy character and ample spice notes that lead to solidly structured and nicely concentrated flavors that culminate in a mouth coating, sappy and complex finish. This is very Nuits in underlying character but the concentration and finishing complexity are most appealing. I like the way this is evolving and it is on track to reach its majority right around 10 years of age." (Mar 2008)

 

Stephen Tanzer: 87-89
"Good red-ruby. Reduced nose offers black raspberry, espresso, leather and smoky oak. Sweet, fat and ripe in the middle, but today the wine's wood tannins dry the finish. Offers very good flavor intensity, but the Boudots is more classic." (Apr 2003)

 

Producer note:
A clearly pronounced personality: powerful, sometimes wild aromas; a marked acidity, which give it a captivating freshness; a fine roundness. In short, an intense wine which has many cards in its hand to win you over.

<pThe vines are in their prime in terms of age and quality since they were planted in two sessions between 1965 and 1972. They produce grapes which mature very early and no time must be lost in picking them before they spoil. Yet their acidity is astonishing and gives its very distinctive character to the wine.
Lying half way between Vosne and Nuits St-Georges, like Nuits Boudots, ideally situated on the lower (and nobler) part of the hill, and facing east: the soil is fairly fine, even sandy at the top of the plot. The name of the 'cru ' refers to a pile of stones which still exists today, since the soil once had to be 'destoned' in order to render it more suitable for cultivation.
