MEO CAMUZET GEVREY CHAMBERTIN 2015
Country: France, Bourgogne, Cote De Nuits
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
This is riper still as there is a liqueur-like quality to the blend of various dark berries, spice, underbrush and soft earth scents. There is both good volume and energy to the detailed middle weight flavors that deliver solid if not truly special length on the dusty, firm and mildly austere finale. Tasted: Jan 2017

Gevrey-Chambertin – a village in Burgundy"s Côte de Nuits district – produces some of the world"s most prestigious and expensive red wines. The village is home to nine grand cru vineyards, comfortably more than any other Burgundy village (the nearest contender is Vosne-Romanée). Eight of these feature "Chambertin" somewhere in their name, in homage to the most respected among them: Le Chambertin.

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
