A blend of domaine and négoce fruit, as usual, the 2020 Nuits-Saint-Georges (Méo-Camuzet Frère & Soeurs) reveals aromas of cherries, sweet red berries and cassis mingled with warm spices and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated, with terrific depth at the core, lively acids and fine, powdery tannins, it comes recommended. Jean-Nicolas Méo began his harvest on August 23, and he has produced another fine vintage at this Vosne-Romanée reference point. Méo has always done well in warm, sunny vintages (as a lovely bottle of his 2003 Nuits Lavières recently reminded me), and 2020 is no exception. Indeed, for a vintage that was generally somewhat primary and frequently tightly wound this winter, Méo’s wines—habitually quite backward after 12 months’ élevage—were remarkably put together and expressive. Mostly landing at around 13.5% alcohol, they’re vibrant, concentrated and nicely balanced, showing considerable aging potential.
