2018 Domaine Meo-Camuzet 'Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru' Cote de Nuits
Winemaker’s Notes: The nose is open, fine and elegant: some slight hints of wood (vanilla, smokiness) and a lot of red fruit (raspberry). The palate is equally fine and elegant, with lots of latent strength; the finish is at the same time soft and complex and above all very long. An attractive wine, which charmed us throughout the period of maturation in oak for the wines of this vintage (which weren't all easy) and whose enchanting character can be found in the bottle.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is also showing very well, exhibiting aromas of sweet wild berries, dried flowers, woodsmoke, blood orange and rich soil tones. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, concentrated and muscular, with an ample chassis of fine tannins, good tension at the core and a long, youthfully chewy finish. Barrel Sample: 93-95"
Decanter - "Jean-Nicolas made two cuvées of Clos de Vougeot in 2017, but reverted to one in 2018. Fresh, charming and refined, the result is a supple, floral Pinot Noir that's almost good to drink straight out of the barrel, with aromatic cinnamon spice, fine tannins and very well-integrated 80% new wood. Not the most structured Grand Cru perhaps, but this is very sweet and engaging."
Burghound - "An unusually spicy and appealingly fresh array is comprised by liqueur-like red berry fruit aromas, especially cherry, that are laced with notes earth, lavender and a whisper of exotic spice. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the rich, well-detailed and relatively sleek medium-bodied flavors that display focused power on the sneaky long and markedly firm finale. Barrel Sample: 91-94"
Wine Spectator - "Pure and juicy cherry, blackberry, violet and earth flavors fill the plush texture in this red. It's harmonious, with a hint of burning vine cuttings on the lingering finish. So lush and velvety it's approachable now, yet there is a solid grip underneath the ripe fruit. Drink now through 2036."
