Wine Critic Reviews for 2005 Meo Camuzet Richebourg

(Domaine Méo-Camuzet ' Richebourg Richebourg Grand Cru Red) This has begun to open, if only a little, to reveal reticent but gorgeously spicy, ripe and strikingly complex aromas of dark pinot fruit, violets, stone, earth and hints of sandalwood. The dense, powerful and very serious large-scaled flavors are sleek, tautly muscular and precise with plenty of minerality present on the very firm though not aggressively structured finish that just goes on and on. A genuine 'wow' wine that possesses positively brilliant potential though be prepared to have the requisite patience. (Drink starting 2023)

A bit monolithic today, but showing a core of sweet red currant, blackberry, rose, mineral and spice aromas and flavors. Overall, the breed and finesse shows, along with the purity, silky texture and length. Picks up a licorice note on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2040. 10 cases imported.

The 2005 Richebourg Grand Cru from Méo-Camuzet has a dark ruby colour. The bouquet is effervescent: more black than red fruit, quite floral with stunning delineation. Behind the fruit lie subtle scents of wet limestone and a little tobacco. The palate is supremely well defined; backward and powerful. This is an instance where vineyard and vintage combine to create a behemoth that is going to need another decade before reaching its drinking plateau. It is a saturnine Richebourg at the moment, ferociously backward and yet instinct tells me this is destined to be wondrous once it finally reaches its drinking plateau. Give it another decade. Tasted at Taillevent restaurant in Paris.

(Méo-Camuzet Richebourg) I have had some absolutely magical vintages of Méo Richebourg, which to my mind is the finest example made, as it typically represents a synthesis of elegance and complexity with the inherent power of this terroir, with the power translated as intensity of flavor, rather than tending towards heaviness that can sometimes waylay other examples. The 2005 is magical, as it offers up an aromatic blend of red plums, black raspberries, dark chocolate and cocoa powder (again the combo), blood orange, striking soil tones, violets and a deft framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and striking pure and precise, with a superb core of fruit, great elegance, bright, tangy acids, suave tannins, and great structural elements supporting wave after wave of beautiful fruit on the soil-driven finish. Ambrosial. (Drink between 2017-2050)

If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
