2015 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Vosne Romanee 1er Cru "Cros Parantoux" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1349619 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Cros Parantoux is blessed with a riveting bouquet armed with copious red and black fruit, wilted violets and rose petals. The aromatics are multi-dimensional with beguiling flair and precocity without feeling a mote overpowering. The quality of the terroir really comes through on the palate: quite dense yet very refined, almost symmetrical in terms of focus with blood orange infusing the layers of red berry fruit on the structured finish. This is a wine that delivers...and then some. (NM)  (12/2016)

94-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Moderate wood sets off the very dense, ripe and fresh nose of both red and dark currant, anise, lavender, tea and wisps of hoisin. There is superb punch and detail to the even more mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors that possess a gorgeously refined mouth feel while delivering impressive power on the focused and magnificently persistent finish where the only flaw is a background hint of warmth. This is beautifully well-constituted because despite the excellent concentration this remains light on its feet and it should age effortlessly for decades to come if you have the patience.  (6/2017)

96 points Decanter

 Rich, brooding black cherry nose, dense but not surly. Very rich and concentrated with a juicy succulence and immense weight of fruit. Powerful, with 13.8% alcohol, but the balance is excellent. Very long, and of exceptional quality.Drinking Window 2019 - 2035. (SB)  (10/2017)

94-96 points Vinous

 Bright medium ruby. More exotic and exuberant on the nose than the Brûlées, with scents of black raspberry and sexy sweet oak dominating in the early going. Sweeter and plusher on the palate; more pliant and showy today. At once penetrating and powerful, with bitter cherry, dark chocolate and sweet oak flavors carrying through a very strong, long finish, where surprising acidity accentuates the wine's structure. This is ultimately harder to taste today than the Brûlées but both of these wines offer near-grand cru quality. (ST)  (12/2017)

Additional Information:


Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
Specific Appellation:

Vosne Romanee

- This is the top of the Côte de Nuits. Home to the famous Grand Crus of Romanée, Romanée-Conti, Romanée St. Vivant, Richebourg, La Tâche, Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux, and La Grand Rue, this village really makes you realize how much extraordinary wine can come from a tiny place. This is the home of quintessential Burgundy-deep, rich, refined and powerful.
