Description

Clive Coates in his 1997 book on Burgundy, “Cote d’Or” described the Meo-Camuzet domain as “among the top handful of leading estates” and its Cros- Parentoux as one of “two very exciting wines indeed” from the domaine:nn“In the Cros-Parentoux the vines are 35 to 40 years old, and take up 30 ares (Henri Jayer and his nephew Emmanuel Rouget exploit the remaining 72 of this tiny climat up above Richebourg. The Brulees is very rich…the Cros-Parentoux, though the vines are less old, has even more to it: a better grip still, another dimension of flavour, and a starting lightly austere individuality. Vosne-Romanee doesn’t come better than this!” (page 543).nnAfter the end of the Second World War, until 1988, the domaine’s vintages were share-cropped by Henri Jayer. Jean-Nicolas Meo then took over responsibility for the domaine. Coates noted that Meo “acknowledges a huge debt to Henri Jayer. ‘He is a marvellous wine-maker..and we largely continue to make our wine according to his recipe.’”nnThe domaine itself decribes this wine as “an opulent, structured wine, both impressive and demonstrative. The acidity is often high and tightens this wine in the finish, especially when it is young, but we cannot speak of austerity, as the first impression on the palate is fat and smooth. A wine which gives you a feeling of generosity.”nnThis wine is difficult to come by, and sought after. It is rarely seen on the market, with only three offers appearing on Wine-Searcher globally. A search of the BfW website currently shows only one instance (of a different vintage) of this wine being put up for sale.nnWine-searcher gives an average price before tax of £2958 for one bottle. Hedonism Wines in London are asking £3550 for one bottle. I do not often set reserves, but given the value of this bottle I have felt obliged to do so.nnThe bottle on sale, which is the one in the photographs, was bought from a reputable wine merchant in Lancashire at least 15 years ago. I bought it as a single bottle. I have kept it properly stored in my cellar, on its side in the dark, since purchase.nnThe front label is in good condition, as shown. There are a couple of scuff marks/tears at the top of the back label, also shown. The capsule is in good condition, with no evidence that I can see of any issues with seepage. The level is well into the neck, 5/6mm below the bottom of the capsule.nnSome tasting notes from Cellartracker and other sources:nn3/7/2019 - Chaochao Likes this wine: 92 PointsnIntoxicating and sensuous nose of animal, worn leather, roses and incense. Round and generous on the palette but not at all fat due the subtle presence of acid. Tannins are nicely integrated but the wine is chewy. More rose on the taste and there are plums as well as some salinity. After 2 hours in the glass, a little petroleum nose evolves and dried fruits of raisins and dates are present too. Such a very delicious wine and absolutely enjoyable because of its heady mix of flowers, earth, salinity and fruitiness both in the nose as well as on the palette.nn3/1/2015 - Robert Pavlovich Likes this wine:nThis Cros Parantoux stole the show at dinner, having a little of everything, but mostly for its elegance, freshness, and balance. It showed excellent spice and earth notes commingled with dark red fruit, closing with good tannins and energy. This is clearly in its prime drinking window, and has taken on the secondary characteristics to show it along with well integrated oak and tannin. nn2/10/2013 - johnh1001 wrote: 94 PointsnInitially the nose was quite closed, but once it got going, it revealed smoke, red fruit, dried roses, herbs and earth.

Insurance is included in the price of this consignment on the terms offered by Royal Mail if sent by Royal Mail.
