Burgundy Tasting with Jean Nicolas Meo, Domaine Meo Camuzet w/ Echezeaux

Thursday, March 1, 2012, from 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Lake Travis Wine Trader, The Best Wine Bar inside a Great Retail Shop
2422 RR 620 South, A118
Lakeway, TX 78738
Taste these four wines:
  • Domaine Meo Camuzet Hauets Du Cotes du Nuits St. Phillibert Monopole 2009
  • Meo Camuzet Freres & Souers Burgundy 2007
  • Domaine Meo Camuzet Echezeaux Rogue Bas 2009 ($375 retail)
  • Domaine Meo Camuzet Vosne Romanee Les Chaumes
Méo-Camuzet is one of the most celebrated domaines of the Côte d’Or, located in the heart of Vosne-Romanée. The domaine boasts fourteen hectares of land in some of the most spectacular appellations and crus of Burgundy. Jean-Nicolas aims for balance and purity of fruit, which he accomplishes with terrific success, having called upon the resident expert, one of Burgundy’s greatest winemakers of all time, Henri Jayer, for guidance. Henri had spent over forty years farming parcels from Méo-Camuzet under his own label. For three years he mentored Jean-Nicolas, finally retiring in 1988. Though Jayer passed away in 2006, his legacy endures to this day. Though delicate and fine, even in their youth, the paradoxical concentration and intensity of these wines make them ideal for long cellar aging. These rare, stunning achievements are a Burgundy lover’s dream.” Kermit Lynch

“The 2009 red Burgundies have attracted considerable attention for their ripe, seductive personalities. Is all of the hype justified? In most cases it is. The 2009s are fleshy, generous wines that are impressive for their textural richness. It is a very even, consistent year across both the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits at all levels.” Robert Parker 

Cost: $50.00 for four wines including the 2009 Echezeaux (19 cases imported).
