Domaine Meo- Camuzet Clos Vougeot 2000
2000 Mature and mild
An abundant harvest, very early, with a high degree of maturity; a very gratifying vintage for the wine-lover, generally with more concentration than in 1997. These are sensual wines, ripe and generous, without any harshness. It’s difficult to imagine that they might improve with time. However, there’s no need to panic. They’re still far from finished and this plateau may last quite a while.
Is this a wine which expresses the Cistercian rigour which gave birth to it? No, its image is rather that of a refined gentleman: the grapes mature early here, but still give wines of great finesse, with a lace-like texture, which lines the palate, with superb length.
The inherent complexity of a 'grand cru' can be felt fairly quickly, it is an easy wine to approach. A wine which can be drunk young, but which sometimes surprises us with its longevity
This wine reacts well to new casks, particularly to Tronçais oak. It quickly expresses the style of the vintage but needs to be matured in a way that will bring out its depth.
Clos Vougeot is a wine which is always mature, and its texture will always show finesse. Its vinification will aim for more extraction than average (by breaking up the cap, for example) in order to obtain a little more length.
The work of the roots is immense, as they must go very deep to find what they need. How far down do they go, the vines planted in 1920, representing about one third of the vineyard plot? Another third have reached adulthood, as the vines were planted in the 1960s, the rest being 20 to 30 years old.
Surface area, situation & orientation
We are lucky to be situated at the top of the appellation, at the foot of the 'château'. These vines see more visitors than any others in the 'Clos'! The soil of this vast plot (nearly 7.5 acres), in one piece, has a well-balanced structure, but is not very deep (16 inches of topsoil); here the roots must work their way down through the cracks in the rocks
這天真的是在我的意料之外 今天是他的生日 認識這麼久
很優雅 有著專注的眼神 堅毅的線條 但卻又好溫柔好溫柔
白色的酒標 就像一座白色的城堡 就像穿著白色西裝從城堡裡走出來的王子
手上拿著一束紫紅色的玫瑰花 空氣裡飄散著黑櫻桃 紫羅蘭 的味道
