Meat and minerals in the 2009 Méo-Camuzet Frère et Sœurs, Fixin


My mother and mother-in-law were up in Maryland this past holiday weekend.  As they had only seen Lou’s kitchen and wine cellar renovation we stopped by for a quick visit.  We could not arrive empty handed so I double-decanted my most recent dump-bin find, the 2009 Méo-Camuzet Frère et Sœurs, Fixin.  With glass in hand we took a quick look around the cellar.  The wine smelled good from the start but it was later that night that it showed best.  Both the aromas and flavors with in sync with meat, minerals, and the slightest hint of maturity.  If you are lucky enough to have a few bottles then hold off drinking them for several more years.  This wine was purchased at MacArthur Beverages.

2009 Méo-Camuzet Frère et Sœurs, Fixin – $30
Imported by MacArthur Liquors.  This wine is 100% Pinot Noir sourced from 25 and 50 year old vines on soils of clay and limestone.  Alcohol 13.5%.  There was a meaty, mineral, incense nosed that was followed by the flavors in the mouth.  There were minerals notes, polished wood, and hard red fruit enlivened by almost juicy acidity.  The wine developed over several hours but remained young and fresh with just a touch of maturity.  The black mineral flavors took on more perfume towards the finish.  This was a very attractive wine that still needs several years in the cellar.  ***(*) Now-2025Camuzet2
