2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru “Près le Cellier”

Domaine Méo-Camuzet
$438.00
AT CART MAX

The Clos de Vougeot was farmed by monks for nearly a thousand years before more earthly beings began to take over. We now have ample historical evidence to be one hundred percent certain that this site is capable of making some of the world’s finest and longest-lived Pinot Noir. It is also one of the few grands crus (like Corton) large enough to have multiple lieux-dits within it. Jean-Nicolas Méo owns vines in the lieux-dits of Grand Mapertuis and Près le Cellier (two very good ones). The 2017 vintage was the first time since 2009, however, that he bottled the lieux-dits separately because they finally had enough wine to do so!
     His Vougeot is marked by richness, concentration, velvety structure, broad aromatics, length, and power. It is a complete wine.

About The Region

Burgundy

map of Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Inspiring Thirst

A good doctor prescribed the wine of Nuits-Saint-Georges to the Sun King, Louis XIV, when he suffered an unknown maladie. When the king’s health was restored the tasty remedy enjoyed a vogue at court. Lord, send me a doctor like that!
