2006 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Murgers"
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Bright ruby-red. Cherry, raspberry and minerals on the lively nose. Less round and sweet than the Boudots but juicier, with good mineral and floral lift. Firm acids keep the middle palate tight but carry the finish. Ultimately quite dense and precise, with lovely juicy length. 'In the past, this wine has needed longer to integrate its oak and become focused,' notes Meo.
Juicy flavors of bilberry and loganberry remain persistent and at the forefront of this suave red. Iron and spice notes seep in as this plays out on the long, juicy aftertaste. There's really fine intensity and length. Best from 2012 through 2024. (Web Only--2010) (BS)
Allen Meadows - Burghound
A pretty and ripe blend of both red and black fruit that displays a subtle animale character as well as notes of underbrush, warm earth and a hint of wood spice that continue onto the serious, concentrated and layered flavors blessed with ample dry extract and excellent finishing depth. This is already nice rich yet it retains a good sense of precision on the tight but impressively long finish. This is very promising but note that it's also a wine for the patient as it will not be an early drinker. Try from 2021+
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Meo-Camuzet 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Aux Murgers is -- explains Jean-Nicolas Meo --– based on fruit that ripened especially precipitately and with fragile skins, even in the context of the vintage, one result of which was particularly low acidity. Blackberry and plum preserves along with roasted beet root and red meat combine for a dark, deep, sweet richness, yet despite Meo's warning, I find more brightness, levity, and primary fruit juiciness here than in many of his other wines of this vintage. Furthermore, the tannins here are fine-grained and mannerly. This is more refined, 'though for the moment perhaps marginally less interesting than the corresponding Boudots, and it should also certainly be worth following for at least 6-8 years. (DS)
