TASTING NOTES

The 2015 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers has a clean and precise bouquet with black cherry, wild strawberry and cassis aromas that fight their way through a patina of reduction. The palate is smooth on the entry with supple tannin, well-judged acidity and a ripe, cohesive finish with tensile black cherry and raspberry notes. Maybe a little more persistence would have been welcome, though I appreciate the focus here.

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

The link with Henri Jayer continues to define, if not overshadow, this estate, which makes outstanding wines completely in its own right. Jean-Nicolas Méo took control in 1989, and the wines have rightfully developed a reputation for being polished, opulent and voluptuous, with wonderful intensity to the fruit. With fourteen hectares in some of the most prestigious parts of the Côte de Nuits, Méo-Camuzet also has a thriving negotiant business.
