Life is too short not to live as long as you don’t harm anyone else - enjoy! Now for the notes
Nose of cherries, minerality and some subtle wood notes. The middle palate is very nice, but the length on the aftertaste is dominated by red fruit. More thick red fruit and dryness and less acidity and balance than I would have expected from the nose. Slightly syrupy. I’m tough on wines so don’t get me wrong this is a decent wine. I wanted more.
A more recent great experience was. 2001 Meo-Cazumet Clos de Vougeot. That was special.

Pls share the tasting notes
Wow I am envious of the wonderful wines you enjoy, and not store as “investments” Yes that is the way to life. To truly use the luxury item to it’s intended purpose.

I drank the whole bottle. Honest but not proud. Lol. And -
Mike you are very correct. Burgundy has indeed been waiting for me. I hope you are well. We seem to have similar tastes in watches and wine. The last five Meo-Cazumet I’ve had were 2003 Vosne-Romanee 1er cru and the Clos Vougeot 2001 and 2003 grand cru. T...
Don’t be embarrassed. The first 3 bottles of Cros Parentoux, a vineyard that Henri Jayer basically bequeathed to the brothers, that I had were unshared with anyone-including my wife! Heaven on earth. By the way:this was the early 2000s and they were 95s. ...
Burgundy prices have gone nuts!
That Cros Parentoux will likely be a multiple of more than 10 over your stated $1300/- Sad ,but makes these out of reach for casual drinking.
It is sad.
I’ve actually switched my focus to Super Tuscans because of the price of Burgundy. I figure I have a few years before the collectors kill this area.
