Bruno Michel "Blanche" Brut Champagne $34.99One of our best non-vintage Champagnes, this organically grown blend of half each Chardonnay and Meunier comes entirely from Bruno Michel's estate. It has been aged for six years on the lees and shows wonderful natural toasty quality as well as incredible vibrance! This was the big hit of our most recent staff Champagne tasting and we think you will love it too.

Keith's Burgundy Hotline: Meo-Camuzet Wines Arrive!

By: Keith Wollenberg | K&L Burgundy Buyer

Hello Burgundy Lovers,

Our handful of 2010 Meo Camuzet wines have rolled in, but will not be here long, needless to say.  Once again, our allocation is so tiny that there is simply no way to allocate them, so I am just making certain you Burgundy Lovers are the first to hear about them, and then it is first come, first served.  

These wines are her in redwood City and are live on the web at www.klwines.com Or, call us at 800-247-5987 to place an order.

 

2010 Meo-Camuzet Bourgogne Rouge $30.99

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Outstanding! A very fresh, pure and expressive nose offers up notes of straw, citrus and white orchard fruit aromas before merging into detailed and energetic middle weight flavors. This very dry and agreeably crisp effort delivers good length and the energy makes it a solidly attractive drink that would make a good choice for a house white"    


2010 Méo-Camuzet Frère et Soeur Fixin $54.99

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A very fresh nose of mostly dark berry fruit, earth and violet aromas leads to nicely detailed middle weight flavors that are not only delicious but evidence very little in the way of rusticity. This forward effort isn't especially complex but it is correct."    K&L Notes: Méo stresses that for his négoce wines that he does everything as though these were domaine wines, which is to say all of the vineyard work and harvesting plus of course the vinification and élevage duties. 


2010 Méo-Camuzet Frère et Soeur Chambolle-Musigny : $79.95

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "exuberantly fresh and expressive nose speaks of pretty red berry fruit that is discreetly interwoven with herbal and floral nuances. The detailed and intensely mineral-driven flavors possess excellent precision and like the straight villages cuvée, this is very Chambolle in character. Here though there is a bit more overall depth and length and I particularly like the sense of balance coupled with plenty of underlying tension." (1/2012)  87-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red. Raspberry, flowers, minerals and mint on the nose. Sweet and harmonious if still a bit youthfully tight.  ...

2010 Méo-Camuzet Frère et Soeur Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Cras" $149.95

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An exuberantly fresh and expressive nose speaks of pretty red berry fruit that is discreetly interwoven with herbal and floral nuances. The detailed and intensely mineral-driven flavors possess excellent precision and like the straight villages cuvée, this is very Chambolle in character. Here though there is a bit more overall depth and length and I particularly like the sense of balance coupled with plenty of underlying tension." (1/2012)  89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. High-toned aromas of raspberry and orange-zest. Dense, sappy and dry, with cherry and saline flavors. N  ...

2010 Domaine Meo-Camuzet Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Aux Murgers" : $159.95

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Outstanding! A soft touch of wood frames a notably ripe nose of black pinot fruit that exhibits gentle spice and earth notes. There is an overtly muscular character to the robust and powerful medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of dry extract that confers a velvety quality to the otherwise chewy, firm and built to age finish." (1/2012)  90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Nuits St. Georges Aux Murgers wafts from the glass with sweet floral notes and exotic spices. This is a more ethereal, feminine style of Nuits that impresses for its grace and subtle, feminine personality. I e  ... Read More »  Limit of 1 per customer


2010 Domaine Meo-Camuzet Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Boudots" : $164.99

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Outstanding! This is also intensely floral with a mix of spice and earth nuances adding breadth to the otherwise pure and perfumed nose of red currant, plum and cassis aromas. There is excellent richness and volume to the concentrated and mouth coating medium weight plus flavors that are shaped by buried tannins on the very firm, balanced and hugely long finish. Unlike the Chaumes however, this will very likely match or even exceed its 2005 counterpart. Note however that plenty of patience will be a requisite." (1/2012)  90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Nuits St. Georges Les Boudo  ... Read More » 


2010 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Clos Vougeot Grand Cru $259.95

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is slightly riper with hints of menthol to the densely fruited nose of cassis, plum and black berry liqueur aromas. There is a high degree of phenolic maturity to the structural elements that shape the very rich, mouth coating and hugely long finish. While this is not quite as youthfully austere as it usually is, it's still going to require close to 20 years of cellar time so this is by no means forward. Once again, the quality is exceptional and this is another wine that could match, or even surpass, its 2005 counterpart." (1/2012)  92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Clos de V  ... Read More »  Limit of 1 per customer
