2001 Méo-Camuzet, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Clos St. PhilibertApr. 2011
What a great wine both this and the 2000 have been – this is my last bottle and all have performed well. Medium-plus golden, the nose has hints of butterscotch and the faintest whiff of oxidation – but in an interesting rather than overt way. The palate remains smooth though there’s a suggestion that the acidity is starting to take hold, but for now it just helps to push the finish a little longer and with a very understated mouth-watering edge. This wine is still giving plenty – for sure it’s completely mature, but whilst I think it might last another few years, if you have some, I’m pretty sure that the experience won’t improve. Well-done Hautes Côtes de Nuits Blanc!
2000 Méo-Camuzet, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Clos St. PhilibertMar. 2010
Medium straw/gold. The nose is warm and faintly savoury with perhaps a little honey too. Vibrant, ripe, quite enough acidity to balance the ‘fat’. This wine is now ‘just right’. Neither super complex, nor super intense, but very tasty all the same.
2001 Méo-Camuzet, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Clos St. PhilibertMay. 2009
Like chalk and cheese these two wines. The 2000 has a quite young, medium yellow colour whereas the 2001 is much more golden. Despite the colours, the 2000 is the more toasty and faintly madirised, the 2001 is aromatically much more like a classic white burgundy. The 2000 needs time in the glass as it starts also with madirised flavours – but they all-but disappear with 1 hour’s aeration, leaving some sweetness, good concentration and balance. The 2001 is very balanced but much more austere in the mid-palate and finish – just needs a little more sweetness for ’solo’ drinking, however, it fits really well with food. Overall, decent value wines that I occasionally see at reasonable prices on restaurant lists.

2007 Méo-Camuzet, Vosne-RomanéeApr. 2009
Pretty and focused red fruit aromas. Mouth-filling, with more fat than most voillages wines. Very nice (as always) sweet red fruit. Has good acidity that seems to extend the finish. High quality.
2007 Méo-Camuzet, Vosne-Romanée Les ChaumesApr. 2009
Not so focused but clearly more complex aromas. Full and friendly impression in the mouth. There is plenty of tannin, but you really have to chew to find it. Slowly, slowly lingering. A very pretty wine.
2007 Méo-Camuzet, Vosne-Romanée Aux BrûléesApr. 2009
High-toned, complex and focused aromas – this is very good. Executive texture of crushed velvet. Largely background acidity. Very long finishing, and it’s on a pure fruit note. This is super.
2000 Méo-Camuzet, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Clos St. PhilibertJul. 2008
Although still a young colour and with aromatics to match, there are two things in the glass – acidity and sweetness – but they are totally separate entities and seem to be heading of in separate directions – I would drink these up.
1989 Méo-Camuzet, Vosne-Romanée Les ChaumesApr. 2007
Medium colour. The nose starts wide, high-toned and mineral with a hint of damp cellar – given time there is a red, plummy fruit aspect and eventually it soars from the glass, showing faint stemmy notes – super. The palate has slightly prickly acidity, reasonable width and considerable length – but needs leaving in the glass a little longer for pleasure. The prickly edge softens and the palate becomes quite complex. Pretty good on the palate, super aromatics.
