Maison Méo-Camuzet Frère et Soeurs
Morey St. Denis
Villages Red barrel
Tasted: Jan 15, 2018
Note: from Clos Solon
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 2016 vintage and importer information. Compared to the excellent quality of the domaine’s 2016s, I found the négociant wines to match, but not exceed, the general quality of the vintage.
Tasting note: A much more expressive nose offers up the perfumed essence of red currant along with subtle earth and herbal tea hints. The delicious, energetic and well-detailed flavors also culminate in a mildly rustic but sneaky long finish that is reasonably well-balanced.
