  • A long discussion with the sommelier at a restaurant with a ridiculous Burgundy collection (it's really crazy, to be honest), led to this choice, following his assertion that even Bourgognes from '05 were still shut down, and knowing that my corporate budget required coming in under $100 or so. And I recently had a great '06, can't argue with Meo, so why not?

    Everything was very good until the finish. The nose, was light, airy, red fruited, with gentle earth notes. The flavors echoed the nose, fruit if not quite ripe then at least inviting and perfumed. Then the finish-flat, hot, alcoholic. I've rarely seen a bottle that seemed so composed just kind of collapse at the finish like a marathoner who is so spent he crawls the last 100 yards. The delicious food did nothing to alleviate the unpleasant final sensation, echoing for me Samuel Johnson Idler 103 essay in which he deconstructs "the secret horror of the last."

    It wasn't at all undrinkable but I hoped for more, especially coming off the sommelier's recommendation and the highly visible, glass-enclosed wine room he extracted it from in plain view.

  • Meo Camuzet F&S Marsannay 2006: perfekt moden med varm tjære (tror ikke det kommer av eik!), bakte kirsebær og hint av kjeks. Kribler i munnen med en ubersoft struktur. Syre og tannin viser seg først i en deilig stram men vel kort finish. Mangler nyanser og konsentrasjon men det er jo grenser for hva man kan forvente i dette prisleiet. Og av og til kan man bli litt lei av produsenter som mener transparanse er den eneste legitime målsetningen i burgund.

    Langt fra nok tannin og kraft til å hamle opp med maten selv om vinens sødme så vidt hang med: flatbiff av lam med rødvinssaus og pannestekte rotgrønnsaker. Her hadde det nok passet bedre med en vin fra nord-rhone.

  • Lots of ripe red and black cherry with nice balance, some earthy and meaty character, then moderate depth, intensity and length.
