    Meo-Camuzet
    2ltal
    Bottle (2)
    "Like many '05s have become in this very early stage of their evolution, this is presently quite reserved though the reticent aromas of dark pinot fruit, minerals, earth and now more evident spice notes are ripe, stylish and classy with very fresh and cool big-bodied and sleekly muscled flavors that positively exude a sense of underlying tension and energy on the very firmly structured and tight-as-a-drum finish that still manages to deliver real explosiveness. One of the great wines of the vintage and worth a special search but be prepared to have some patience while this grows up! A genuine 'wow' wine." (97pts Allen Meadows, Burghound #31, July 2008)

    "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." (97 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #48, Sept. 2012)
