An assembly of multiple plots. Very clean dark fruit aromas. Plenty of dark flavours to match the nose, partly oak-driven. A powerful 07 villages.

Nose is a little powder – soft red fruit too. In the mouth there’s good acidity and length – tannins with just a trace of bitterness and vanilla. Almost good value

Deeply coloured – worryingly deep – oops, oxidised to death, ugh!
1999 Méo-Camuzet Frère & Soeurs, MarsannayDec. 2002
A negociant wine here. Deep red cherry still with some purple hints. The nose has lots of volume with strong, primary red cherry fruit and a hint of higher raspberry – once the faint high-toast oak disappears. The palate is not what you expect from Marsannay; it’s very thick & fruity, though not obviously oak induced. There is almost good acidity, coupled with good tannins and a nice finish. An excellent wine, and one you would never guess to be Marsannay, more like a very good 1er Cru Beaune.
