The 2010 Clos de Vougeot opens with remarkably, perfumed aromatics. Sweet red cherries, hard candy, freshly cut mint and licorice are some of the nuances that add complexity on the palate. Ripe, silky tannins frame the elegant finish. This is a gorgeous, feminine Clos de Vougeot that impresses for its refined personality and sheer class. There is plenty of underlying material to support a long life in the cellar. In 2010 Meo-Camuzet assembled the wines from both of the domaine’s parcels in Clos de Vougeot. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2045.
Jean-Nicolas Meo was away on the day of my visit, so I tasted with assistant winemaker Peer Reiss. The harvest started on September 22 and took about ten days to complete. Overall, I am a big fan of the 2010s here. Although I did not get a chance to taste the 2009s from bottle, my notes suggest 2010 will turn out to be the more interesting vintage. The Meo-Camuzet negociant wines are reviewed separately.
