2018 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Aux Brûlées" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1463172 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Brûlées is brilliant, unfurling in the glass with an exquisite bouquet of sweet red berries, cherries, orange rind, smoked duck and exotic spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, concentrated and enveloping wine framed by velvety tannins and succulent acids, concluding with a long and youthfully chalky finish. From a parcel planted in the 1930s, I often think that Aux Brûlées is Méo's finest wine; and while I'd give the Cros Parantoux the edge this year, it is a superb effort. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

94-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Aux Brûlées 1er Cru, which is de-stemmed, has a complex bouquet, a mélange of red and black fruit laced with incense and subtle potpourri aromas. The beautifully balanced palate offers very fine tannins, good cohesion and impressive depth. There’s a pinch of spice on the finish, which displays superb breeding. Excellent.

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Poured just before Cros Parantoux but just after Richebourg, Aux Brûlées is classed among the domaine's very best reds by Jean-Nicolas Méo. Aged in 80% new wood to reflect its structure, depth and fruit concentration, this has plenty of colour and intensity, ripe raspberry and bramble fruit, refreshing underlying tension and lovely balance and palate length. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An exuberantly spicy mélange features notes of poached plum, spiced Asian pekoe tea, cassis and lovely violet and lilac nuances. The palate impression is rich to the point of opulence with a positively gorgeous texture that carries over to the palate drenching though decidedly firm and mineral-inflected finish that goes on and on. There are hints of wood and warmth but neither are enough to materially detract from just how good this is. *Don't Miss, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2020)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark Jean-Nicolas’ 2018 Brûlées is also a stunning young wine in the making. This comes in at 13.5 percent octane and soars from the glass in a complex blend of black plums, black cherries, duck, black minerality, Vosne spices, dark chocolate and nutty new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full and very elegant in profile, with a sappy core of black fruit, beautiful soil signature, ripe, buried tannins and great balance and grip on the very, very long, very promising finish. 94+ Inner quote mark (12/2019)

K&L Notes

90-93 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Dense black with a purple edge. This is a ripe mostly black fruit nose but can live with it. Fresh enough behind with some mineral crunch. The fruit smothers the structure but is at the limit of ripeness, coming in slightly over 14%."
