Vinous, 95-97 Points 

"The 2019 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is quite closed on the nose, offering discreet blackberry, raspberry and light violet aromas that you might mistake for a Vosne-Romanée. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins. This is a juicy Clos de Vougeot, a little savory and quite peppery on the finish, which you might misconstrue as a result of some stem addition. Sculpted with Jean-Nicolas Méo's finest chisel, this is a wonderful Clos de Vougeot." 

Decanter, 96 Points 

"Located near the château, Méo's holding in the Clos de Vougeot dates to Etienne Camuzet’s purchase in 1920 and the average vine age is 60 years. These grapes are blended with a parcel in Grand Maupertuis to produce what must surely be among the most majestic wines of the Clos de Vougeot, with a strikingly spicy black fruit, massive concentration and a brooding, tannic structure that leads to an immense finish." 

Wine Advocate, 93-95 Points 

"Méo's 2019 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is shaping up brilliantly, mingling notes of orange peel, cassis and plums with notions of rose petals, sweet soil tones and exotic spices. Full-bodied, deep and layered, it's velvety and concentrated, with real mid-palate amplitude and an elegantly muscular profile. Perfumed and penetrating, this cuvée—from an optimally situated parcel below the château—is a fine long-haul proposition. Jean-Nicolas Méo began picking on September 13, observing that "everything was ripe at once this year," and that alcohol levels—for the most part, around 14%—were a little higher than he would have wished for. Yet the wines in the glass are hard to fault: Méo excelled in 2018, and his 2019s are even more structurally refined and vibrant. As I've written before, Méo's wines see quite a long élevage, and they can often be a little structural and introverted in the fall following the vintage, but these 2019s, just like the 2018s at the same stage last year, were remarkably open for inspection. Displaying superb concentration and mid-palate amplitude without any particular perception of heaviness, I found much to admire; and, in summation, this is a very fine portfolio that, when taken as a set, appears to match or surpass what was achieved here in 2018." 

Burghound, 91-94 Points 

"Relatively cool and airy aromas feature notes of dark currant, earth and a subtle suggestion of the exotic tea, all of which is trimmed in admirably subtle wood nuances. Like the Murgers, there is a lovely palate impression to the sappy and relatively supple medium-bodied flavors that tighten up on the youthfully austere, balanced and highly persistent finish. This lovely effort is already quite harmonious and showing very well." 

Jasper Morris, 91-94 Points 

"Medium purple lighter rim, soft and very ripe raspberry/strawberry fruit. The Clos Vougeot was picked early but possibly it was already at the limit of ripeness. Lower acidity and showing its wood more." 

Alcohol: 14.5%
