2019 Maison Méo-Camuzet Frère et Soeur Fixin 1er Cru "Clos du Chapitre" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1535616 89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is also reduced though much less so as hints of herbal tea and earth are discernible. More interesting are the fresh and vibrant medium weight flavors that possess both a lovely texture and evident minerality on the linear, youthfully austere and balanced finale. This will need a few years to flesh out and add depth, but it seems promising. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

Outer quote mark Produced from fruit purchased from several parcels in Fixey, including the lieux-dits Le Clos and Les Herbues, at the base of the slope where the cool air comes down from the Hautes Côtes. This has produced a light-bodied, perfumed wine, with a lovely silky texture and a pure cherry fruit. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Fixin (Méo-Camuzet Frère & Soeurs) is promising, delivering scents of wild berries, coniferous forest floor and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, bright and lively, it's nicely balanced, with powdery tannins and a mineral finish. Jean-Nicolas Méo began picking on September 13, observing that "everything was ripe at once this year," and that alcohol levels—for the most part, around 14%—were a little higher than he would have wished for. Yet the wines in the glass are hard to fault: Méo excelled in 2018, and his 2019s are even more structurally refined and vibrant. As I've written before, Méo's wines see quite a long élevage, and they can often be a little structural and introverted in the fall following the vintage, but these 2019s, just like the 2018s at the same stage last year, were remarkably open for inspection. Displaying superb concentration and mid-palate amplitude without any particular perception of heaviness, I found much to admire; and, in summation, this is a very fine portfolio that, when taken as a set, appears to match or surpass what was achieved here in 2018.
