Corton la Vigne au Saint, Méo Camuzet 2011
Reduction blocks the nose. This is quite supple, indeed it's borderline light on the mineral-infused and punchy barely medium weight flavors that possess an attractive sense of energy on the acceptably long finish. What's interesting here is that this is on the lighter yet very firm side as this will need ample time to shed its structure as the backend is really quite tightly wound. Drink: 2023+

Good bright red. Subtle, ripe aromas of redcurrant, minerals, smoke and earth. Then chewy and suave on the palate, with sound acidity currently keeping the wine's fruit component under wraps. Finishes tight and minerally, with slightly tough tannins and good subtle persistence. There's an almost lemony edge on the finish that makes this hard to assess today.
