RATINGS

94Wine Spectator

A leafy tobacco accent mingles with the cherry and berry fruit in this supple red. Dry, dusty tannins follow up... Plenty of fruit...the lasting impression is sweetness.

91-93+ The Wine Advocate

...classy bouquet of cassis, plums, cinnamon and dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with velvety tannins, a deep core of sapid fruit and lovely structural tension...

90-92Vinous / IWC

The attractive, well-defined bouquet features vibrant black cherries, blueberry and crushed stone aromas, all precise and focused...medium-bodied with a supple entry and plenty of red fruit laced with brown spices. Quite elegant and charming...

16.5Jancis Robinson

Ripe, sweet cherry. Deep, rich and velvety... Generous...tannins are extremely fine.

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.
