2019 Méo-Camuzet Pommard
Jean-Nicolas Méo is widely regarded as one of the very best producers of red Burgundy. His wines have a unique style. They possess a sensual velvet structure, complexity, richness, depth and an enchanting perfume. They are strongly reminiscent of the wines of the recently deceased Henri Jayer (according to many the greatest winemaker in the modern history of Burgundy). This is not surprising, Jean Méo learned the trade from Jayer and he was associated with Méo-Camuzet as a consultant for a long time.
Pommard is one of those legendary appellations of the Côte d'Or (Côte de Beaune). The appellation is wedged between the wine regions of Beaune (in the north) and Volnay (in the south). In the appellation Pommard AOC or Pommard Premier Cru AOC, only red wines are made. The name Pommard comes from the goddess of garden fruits, Pomona.
The Méo-Camuzet Pommard has the typical Pinor noir color in the glass. Fresh, translucent, ruby red. On the nose, the Pommard has quite a luscious bouquet with vibrant morello cherry mixed with crushed strawberry scents, more blue fruit emerging in the glass over time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, well-considered acidity and red cherries in the caressing finish. A handsome glass that will develop even further over time.
