Domaine Méo Camuzet Hautes Côte de Nuits Blanc St Philibert 2011 Few of us can afford the great wines of Meo-Camuzet who, and deservedly so, is one of the undisputed superstars of Burgundy. The perfectly drinking 2011 Hautes Côte de Nuits Blanc St Philibert is simply a delight – Beautifully ripe, flowers, white stone fruits and pears are all layered into the silky, polished finish. Drink now.
This sensational St Aubin is beautifully balanced, delivering a poised and rounded palate with crunchy fruit and lively core acidity. It is clean with the pure fruit character of lemon and stone fruit shining through and on the finish a hint of spice. This is a serious wine with no shortage of minerality and will evolve and improve for a few years to come.

The 2015 Mazoyeres Chambertin Grand Cru has a very intense bouquet with lifted redcurrant, raspberry, spice box and quite a noticeable marine influence coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin. This is very focused, almost athletic in terms of tension and somehow "nimble" in the mouth, no heaviness here (a great attribute in such a warm growing season). This is one of the best Mazoyeres Chambertin that I have tasted.
A perfect introduction to the delights and complexity of real white Burgundy, this is mainly Côte d'Or fruit, together with some from the Maconnais. Fresh with lovely weight, delicate creaminess and judicious oak, making this a beautifully balanced dry white wine.

Beautiful savoury nuances where delicate hints of umami complement minerally red and black fruit. Incredible complexity and amazing silky texture. For me (GB), this is the wine of the vintage, showing supreme elegance in all aspects. Extremely rarely do I give 99 or 100 points to very young wines, but I could easily have broken my own rule here. Exceptional!
This wine’s balance and sense of harmony are impossible to miss. The palate is tense and vibrant with heightened energy and precision: the tannins super-fine and capture a striking marriage of power and sensuality. Truly gorgeous.
