2009 Meo Camuzet Nuits St Georges Aux Murgers
The 2009 Nuits St. Georges Aux Murgers is a relatively delicate style of Nuits that nevertheless possesses good intensity in its fruit. Floral notes add lift and freshness on the close. This is another beautifully open, expressive wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

Good deep red with ruby highlights. Very dark aromas of black cherry, blackberry, bitter chocolate and earth. Broad but a bit youthfully tough, offering less easy sweetness today than the Boudots. Finishes with substantial building dusty tannins and noteworthy power. This may well need six or seven years of bottle aging, while the more Vosne-like Boudots will probably be delicious in four or five years. 91-93 points

Producer note: Jean-Nicholas Méo calls 2009 a "curious vintage. It's very ripe with high pHs yet the wines don't taste at all the way that one might imagine given those characteristics. We began picking on the 12th of September and I now wonder if I didn't perhaps begin one to perhaps two days too late. It's easy to second guess yourself after the fact but I might have been able to obtain a bit more freshness but when it comes down to picking decisions you can drive yourself crazy asking 'what if?' Potential alcohols were strong at around 13.5% with a few wines hitting 13.9% and obviously nothing was chaptalized. Pre-malo pHs were in the 3.2 to 3.35 range and rose to between 3.6 and 3.7 after the long malos had completed, which is about the same level as what we obtained in 2007. Overall, I like the vintage because despite the high levels of ripeness, the wines just don't taste like they come from such a ripe vintage." Fans of the domaine will note the presence of two new wines that come from a .68 ha parcel of Corton-Perrières and the second is a .19 ha parcel of Corton-La Vigne au Saint. These parcels will complement the existing .45 ha parcel of Corton-Rognets. The domaine is blessed with a huge vineyard block in Clos de Vougeot, indeed a full 3 ha making it the second largest owner after Château de La Tour (see herein). To that end, Méo noted that he may begin making a second cuvée from the portion of vines located within Grand Maupertuis.
Tasting note: A ripe, fresh and much more sauvage and classic Nuits nose of humus, earth and dark berry fruits that precedes rich, intense and rather suave medium-bodied flavors blessed with ample amounts of dry extract that smooth out the ever-so-slightly rustic and very firm tannins on the gorgeously long finish. This should age very well as the balance is spot on.
