Meo-Camuzet Corton Perrieres Grand Cru, Cote de Beaune, France 2017
"Deep ruby-red. Superripe, even slightly roasted aromas of black raspberry and chocolate are at the verge of extreme. Hugely sweet, creamy wine with adequate acidity but a distinctly candied fruit character for the year. Finishes very long and a bit aggressive but not quite warm, with big, chewy tannins accentuated by a stem element. A bit of a caricature but has the structure too age. Méo noted that this vineyard needs to be harvested late, but admitted that he may have waited too long in 2016. (His fruit from Corton La Vigne au Saint, situated on the Pernand-Vergelesses side of the hill of Corton, was wiped out by frost in 2016.) He is also aging this wine in 50% new oak, which is slightly higher than in past vintages."
