Domaine Méo-Camuzet "Clos Saint-Philibert" Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc 2018
When we talk about the best real estate the higher up you go the better you are generally speaking, but not so with Burgundy. Most of the best sites are in the middle of the slope, perfect for soil and temperature...this is definitely something that is changing. The tops of the slopes have traditionally been too cool, and broken soils tended to produce wines slated as simple Bourgogne. However, one of Burgundy's famed producers has been producing from a Monopole vineyard that has been a standout for years. With climate change more and more are investing in this area, but Méo-Camuzet has been rooted here because they knew! This Chardonnay is from the top of the slope that looks over the most heralded vineyards in Burgundy - right above Échézeaux. It has richness and freshness, crisp minerality, and the perfect toasty balance of oak. LIke all of their wines, this is a Méo-Camuzet you need to grab now!
