Meo Camuzet Nuits Saint Georges
Nuits Saint Georges
Producer note: Jean-Nicolas Méo stresses that for his négoce wines he does everything as though these were domaine wines, which is to say all of the vineyard work and harvesting plus of course the vinification and élevage duties. See the Domaine comments above for more general information about the 2015 vintage and importer information. Compared to the stunningly good quality of the domaine's 2015s, I found the négociant wines to match, but not exceed, the general quality of the vintage.
Tasting note: A brooding and markedly restrained nose grudgingly reveals notes of dark berry liqueur, earth and sauvage nuances. There is both good power and tension to the muscular flavors that culminate in a rustic and mouth coating finish. This firm effort is very Nuits in basic character.
