Wine of the Day

2009 Meo-Camuzet Freres & Soeurs, Marsannay AC, Red Burgundy.
Always one of my favorite wines, the Meo-Camuzet Marsannay is a little beauty and made for a great Christmas treat this year, showing lovely now. The nose is detailed with fruit, flowers and earthy essences leading to a silky rich palate of red currant, black cherry, plum and brambly raspberry fruits, truffle, licorice and tea spices with a streak of minerallity running through out. Hints of game, lively acidity and a saline note all make for a very complete wine that shows focused Pinot Noir character and class. Sometimes expectations make for a bit of a let down with Burgundy, but this fine example brings loads of pleasure and leaves a big smile, this was a great showing for the 2009 Meo-Camuzet Marsannay and I’m glad I have another few bottles stowed away.
