Meo-Camuzet - Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2020


"Méo produced four barrels of the 2020 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Méo-Camuzet Frère & Soeurs) from purchased grapes (as opposed to must), and it's a fine effort. Offering up aromas of pear, pastry cream, lime cordial, white flowers and freshly baked bread, it's full-bodied, rich and muscular, with a fleshy core of fruit, lively acids and a saline finish. Jean-Nicolas Méo began his harvest on August 23, and he has produced another fine vintage at this Vosne-Romanée reference point. Méo has always done well in warm, sunny vintages (as a lovely bottle of his 2003 Nuits Lavières recently reminded me), and 2020 is no exception. Indeed, for a vintage that was generally somewhat primary and frequently tightly wound this winter, Méo's wines—habitually quite backward after 12 months' élevage—were remarkably put together and expressive. Mostly landing at around 13.5% alcohol, they're vibrant, concentrated and nicely balanced, showing considerable aging potential. (WK)" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
