2017 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1401149 93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a detailed, quite elegant bouquet of expressive wild strawberry, cassis and subtle violet aromas, Vosne-like in style. The mineral component becomes more palpable with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, rounded and even corpulent in the mouth, layers of lightly spiced red fruit merging with orange peel and brown spices toward the harmonious and quite persistent finish. This is a very finely crafted Clos de Vougeot from Méo-Camuzet. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Outer quote mark The Méos have two parcels inside the Clos, with the larger of them next to the château, totalling 3ha in all. This is a plush, ripe, substantially oaked wine with 80% new wood, lots of red berry sweetness and a chalky undertone. A wine that reflects its warm vintage. Drinking Window 2024 - 2029.

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru unfurls in the glass with an attractive bouquet of raspberries, red cherries, incense, dark chocolate and cedary new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and pure with a comparatively open-knit profile for Méo's Clos Vougeot, though there is plenty of fine-grained structuring tannin held in reserve, concluding with a nicely focused but youthfully firm finish. Longtime fans of Domaine Méo-Camuzet will be delighted by the 2017 vintage at this address, as the domaine has produced an attractive collection of charming, supple wines that are beautifully defined by site but which will also be unusually approachable out of the gates. While many of the wines had been racked not long before my tasting, they were still expressive, and I suspect they will prove even more satiny and gourmand in bottle. Méo began picking on September 6, finishing just over a week later. Like many others, he reports that the wines fleshed out considerably during élevage and is thinking of bottling them a little earlier than usual. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark I always like the Méo-Camuzet Clos Vougeot, but my gut feeling is always that this is the one wine in the cellar that absolutely calls out for more “one wine barrels” and less new oak. I just have this gut feeling that there is a lot more lurking here in terms of terroir expression that could come to the fore with a gentle oak regimen, but Jean-Nicolas Méo notes that I say this very often about a lot of other wines in Burgundy and it is not specific to this bottling. However, I would love to see just one vintage where this wine was raised in twenty-five percent new casks and seventy-five percent one wine barrels, as it would be a very interesting experiment. Plea over. The 2017 Echézeaux was raised in eighty percent new oak this year and offer sup a very pretty and nascently complex bouquet of red and black cherries, cocoa powder, plums, a nicely complex signature of soil, cedar and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and elegant in profile, with lovely mid-palate purity, fine focus and grip and a long, ripely tannic finish. Good juice. 2027-2075.

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Much more subtle oak treatment sets off the pretty and airy aromas of various red berries, lavender and soft earth scents. The generously proportioned and attractively detailed middle weight flavors are prettier than they are deep though this is not to say that they lack density on the persistent and youthfully austere finale. I quite like this and particularly for its sense of harmony but good as it is, it's clearly not at the same level as the Rognets. However, if the cuvée of Grand Maupertuis (reviewed just below) is included here, I would expect that to improve the overall quality. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

94pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Good depth of deep red fruit, this has a very classy nose, with the weight of a grand cru but with some refinement too. The oak is of course present but is not obtrusive. No more than medium weight but it is balanced and persistent." (01/2019)
