The symphony of quality that is the 2013 vintage at Domaine Méo-Camuzet reaches quite a crescendo with the Richebourg, which is simply brilliant and perhaps the greatest Richebourg Jean-Nicolas has yet fashioned here. The brilliant bouquet offers up scents of red plums, red and black cherries, cocoa, nutmeg, duck, musky floral tones, a superbly complex base of soil and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and stunningly elegant out of the blocks, with a sappy core, great soil signature and nascent complexity, laser-like focus, ripe, suave tannins and a very, very long, elegant and tangy finish. Richebourg is not my favorite terroir amongst the most rarefied grand crus in the Côte de Nuits, but if they were all as good as the 2013 Méo version, I might have to rethink my position! This is spectacular young wine. (Drink between 2025-2075)

Blackberry and cassis aromas are complicated by coffee and a subtle floral character, with some sweet oak adding another dimension. Densely packed and sappy, with an urgent quality and superb lift to the crushed dark berry fruit. A wonderfully saline, soil-driven wine with outstanding inner-mouth tension. The extremely long, slowly mounting finishes features a serious tannic backbone and outstanding vibrancy. Built for a long evolution in bottle.

(BH94-97 points) In contrast to the relative expressiveness of the Cros Parantoux this is almost mute though aggressive swirling does liberate a beautiful array of violet, spice and plum aromas that are trimmed in gentle sandalwood hints. The imposingly-scaled big-bodied flavors possess a velvety mouth feel thanks to the plethora of dry extract that does a great job of buffering the very firm tannic spine on the stony, detailed and massively long finish. While there is certainly very fine size and weight this is not what I would describe as a huge Méo Riche but everything is in perfect proportion plus the balance is impeccable. As is almost always the case this will not be a good candidate for early consumption so be prepared to buy it and forget it.

(WA93-95 points) The 2013 Richebourg Grand Cru has a very expressive bouquet, perhaps more so than the Cros Parantoux at this primordial stage: a mixture of red and black fruit, bay and Earl Grey, later accompanied by rose-petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red berry fruit intermingling with mint and sage, gradually building to a suave, minerally finish. This is an excellent Richebourg for the vintage, although I would be hedging my bets on the Cros Parantoux this year. - Neal Martin
