RATINGS

92-94The Wine Advocate

...bouquet of ripe cherries, raspberries, rose petals and spices, complemented by subtle hints of rich soil as well as carnal nuances. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and elegant, with good concentration, fine tannins and a long, mineral finish.

90-92Vinous / IWC

The palate is medium-bodied with slightly angular tannins...good tension and nervosité toward the finish...

PRODUCER

Méo-Camuzet

Domaine Meo-Camuzet owns or controls 38 acres in Vosne-Romanee, in Burgundy’s Cote d’Or. The estate was founded in the early 20th century when Etienne Camuzet, a politician from the Cote d’Or, started acquiring vineyards. His daughter passed them on to Jean Meo, a relative who worked for Charles de Gaulle. Until the 1980s much of the domaine was farmed by metayers, or sharecroppers, who gave part of what they produced to the domaine and kept the rest. In 1945 the young Henri Jayer began working Meo-Camuzet parcels in Richebourg, Vosne-Romanee, Les Brulees and Nuits-Meurgers. When Meo’s son Jean-Nicolas took over the estate’s operations in 1985, he worked closely with the legendary Jayer for three years, until Jayer retired in 1988. Jayer died in 2006, but his winemaking legacy is evident in Meo-Camuzet’s modern vintages. Today the estate produces Grands Crus, Premiers Crus and village wines.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Nuits-St.-Georges, Aux Boudots

Aux Boudots is a 15.8-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the appellation of Nuits-Saints-Georges, in Burgundy’s Cote de Nuits. Located at the northern end of Nuits-Saints-Georges, the vineyard is just across the appellation division from Vosne-Romanee’s Premier Cru Les Malconsorts. Because there are no Grand Cru vineyards in Nuits-Saints-Georges, the appellation’s considerable reputation rests on its excellent Premier Crus. Aux Boudot is 250-290 meters above sea level, a near ideal elevation, and the soil is limestone, gravel and clay. Burgundy writer Clive Coates has noted that Aux Boudot “is altogether more Vosne in character than Nuits.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
