Located in the heart of Vosne-Romanee, Meo-Camuzet is one of the most celebrated domaines of Burgundy, with an astounding fourteen hectares of land in some of the region’s most hallowed crus. Now managed by second-generation winemaker Jean-Nicolas Meo, the domaine aims to create the purest possible expressions of its vineyard holdings, and while the wines are often described as delicate and feminine in youth, they possess a paradoxical concentration and intensity that make them ideal for long term aging. The 2017 vintage has been hailed as a "modern classic" in Burgundy, particularly for the red wines of the Cote d’Or, and Estate Wine Brokers is proud to offer these top bottlings at the lowest retail prices in the country:
Domaine Meo Camuzet Clos de Vougeot Grand Maupertuis Grand Cru 2017 750ml - $389
94 Points Wine Advocate "The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru unfurls in the glass with an attractive bouquet of raspberries, red cherries, incense, dark chocolate and cedary new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and pure with a comparatively open-knit profile for Méo's Clos Vougeot, though there is plenty of fine-grained structuring tannin held in reserve, concluding with a nicely focused but youthfully firm finish.

Domaine Meo Camuzet Clos de Vougeot Pres le Cellier Grand Cru 2017 750ml (BH 93) - $359
93 Points Burghound "Much more subtle oak treatment sets off the pretty and airy aromas of various red berries, lavender and soft earth scents. The generously proportioned and attractively detailed middle weight flavors are prettier than they are deep though this is not to say that they lack density on the persistent and youthfully austere finale. I quite like this and particularly for its sense of harmony but good as it is, it's clearly not at the same level as the Rognets. However, if the cuvée of Grand Maupertuis (reviewed just below) is included here, I would expect that to improve the overall quality. (AM)"
Domaine Meo Camuzet Echezeaux Les Rouges du Bas Grand Cru 2017 750ml (WA 94) - $489
94 Points Wine Advocate "Aromas of licorice, cherries and cassis mingle with aromas of smoked meats, bonfire and spicy new oak, introducing the 2017 Echézeaux Grand Cru, a medium to full-bodied wine that's ample, expansive and fine-boned, framed by youthfully chewy tannins that will resolve into velvety suppleness with a few years in bottle. (WK)" (01/2019)
Domaine Meo Camuzet Nuits St Georges Aux Boudots 1er Cru 2017 750ml (WA 93+) - $219
93+ Points Wine Advocate "The 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots wafts from the glass with a classy bouquet of cassis, plums, cinnamon and dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with velvety tannins, a deep core of sapid fruit and lovely structural tension, concluding with a long and youthfully firm finish. Fermented with some 12% stems, this is one of the longer-term prospects in the Méo cellar. (WK)" (01/2019)
Domaine Meo Camuzet Nuits St Georges Aux Murgers 1er Cru 2017 750ml (WA 92) - $189
92 Points Wine Advocate "Aromas of cassis, dark berries, grilled game and smoky new oak introduce the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers, a medium-bodied wine that's satiny, layered and fine-boned, displaying unusually suave structure at this early stage and concluding with a sneakily intense finish despite its elegantly middle-weight profile. This is shaping up to be a precocious Méo Murgers that will drink well with just a few years' bottle age. (WK)" (01/2019)
