A mouth-watering Burgundy red

With 20 hectares of some of the best crus in Burgundy, Meo-Camuzet has made a name for itself in the wine world. Producing six Grand Crus and 10 Premier Crus, the Domaine’s winery highlights the magnificent terroir in their balanced and pure wines. Established in 1981, Meo-Camuzet released their first vintage in 1983. Prior to establishing the Domaine and bottling their own wine, sharecroppers tended to the estate. Etienne Camuzet purchased this land with the support of fellow winegrowers in Vosne Romanee to rent portions and help maintain the vines.

This land was passed down through the family to current owner Jean-Nicolas Meo. Jean-Nicolas was in business school when he was encouraged to take over the estate. He went through oenology school after finishing business school and came back to the estate in the Cote d’Or to start a new family legacy. With the help of mentors Henri Jayer and Christian Faurois, who were sharecroppers for many years on the land, Domaine Meo-Camuzet continues to create legendary wines.

Echezeaux is a Grand Cru vineyard that sits on slopes above the Clos de Vougeot in the Cote de Nuits. With 400 hectares of exclusively Pinot Noir, the wines tend to be on the fuller bodied side for Burgundy, displaying notes of red fruit, spices and earthy characteristics. The small plot that Meo-Camuzet owns is at the upper limits of the Echezeaux appellation with lighter clay soils. The high altitude and southeastern orientation allows the grapes to ripen early and evenly with aromatic freshness. The Meo-Camuzet Echezeaux Grand cru "Les Rouges du Bas" 2014 is beautifully balanced with pronounced acidity. Bold mixes of cherry and blackcurrant aromas lead to a smoky, earthy and vegetal touch. On the palate the wine is big but delicate and fresh, with rounded silky tannins and a great length of fruit, tannins and spices. With the abundance of acid and tannins, this wine would be the perfect bottle for cellaring. Patience is key to enjoy this wine but it will not disappoint, revealing its richness and beauty.
