Barest hint of secondary aromas are now poking through the thick, rich, red and black fruits. The typical Méo Clos de Vougeot often seems a bit light on release and then puts on weight over time and that is exactly what has occurred with the 93 as it now displays much better density, weight and power than 5 years earlier. There is good length with fine richness though at the moment this is quite serious, almost brooding in its personality. If this continues to add complexity with age, I would expect my score to increase accordingly.

For whatever reason, the Clos de Vougeot is the lightest-colored of all the Meo-Camuzet 1993s, displaying an average ruby color. Although one-dimensional, the wine has good ripeness, medium body, and a spicy, lightly tannic finish. Cellar it for 2-4 years and drink it over the following 5-6. Meo-Camuzet’s 1993s are unquestionably successes for the vintage. All the wines were bottled in April, 1995 without fining or filtration.
