The name of the cru means "small pits", and the vines are indeed situated in a small hollow in the centre of the village between the two hills of Chambolle. The soil is not at all deep, which may explain the mineral finish of this wine.

A round and charming, with a touch of minerality and a little tannin in the finish, which brings it an additional dimension. The structure can be a little dominant when the wine is young.

Our notes

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Bursting with aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries and plums, mingled with notes of rose petals and spices, the 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Feusselottes (Méo-Camuzet Frère & Soeurs) is medium to full-bodied, velvety and fleshy, with succulent acids and a ripe but lively core of fruit. Méo not only purchases the grapes from this parcel but also farms the vineyard. The 2018 vintage has turned out brilliantly at Domaine Méo-Camuzet, delivering exquisitely balanced wines that were strikingly expressive, even demonstrative, when I visited in late November. Méo's wines see quite a long élevage, and they can often be a little structural and introverted in the fall following the vintage, but these 2018s were simply singing. Méo began his harvest on August 29, and like a number of his peers, he observes that his parcels didn't necessarily ripen in the usual order in 2018, with his holdings in Corton in particular accumulating sugar very rapidly. But careful attention to the date of harvest meant that most wines in the cellar are around 13.5% alcohol this year, with only a couple hitting 14%. Beautifully balanced and structurally refined, the Méo-Camuzet wines will enjoy very long lives this year, and they come warmly recommended. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A beautifully airy and elegant nose is comprised by essence of dark berries and spice, both of which are trimmed in just enough wood to merit mentioning. There is both good volume and vibrancy to the medium-bodied flavors that exude hints of bitter cherry pit and minerality on the mildly warm and less structured finale. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
