Initially interesting, but declined rapidly, and further declined on day two. Nothing to write home about, and I purchased half a case. Meo Camuzet is my fave Burgundy producer. I’m mortified. — 12 hours ago

That sucks. Especially when you buy a sixer. Sorry to hear that.

Off bottle perhaps? I've been a fan of this effort so far. 14 and 15 were great, I've not had a 16 yet. Check these in a few more years to see if they're more to your liking.
(BTW, big M-C fan here also.)

Domaine de la Cotelleraie

Gérald Vallée Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil Cabernet Franc

Huge waft of cranberry/blueberry fresh picked.
Tangy, zippy, bright fruits., a hint of herbaceous green herbs, high acidity makes this just one fun wine. Heavier of the light bodied spectrum. A lovely wine.

Own-Rooted Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

This is seriously good stuff. Own rooted pinots from Nicolas-Jay. Vines are 30 years old. Floral and Spicy, ethereal, dense but elegant, with velvety tannins. Excellent now and no rush, drink or hold. Enthusiastically recommended ! — 21 days ago

The mouthfeel is lush & beautiful. The mousse so soft. The acidity is finely focused & lively. Slightly less (than the nose) macerated fruits notes of; green apples, pineapple, sour & macerated lemon, limes, kiwi, white peach, golden apple, candle /beeswax, understated white spice with perfect razor blade penetration on the tongue, Fine limestone & grey volcanic powder, sea fossils & spray, melted caramel, vanillin, light herbaceousness, mint, yeast, bread dough, used wood presence, notes of melted brown sugar with brighter white flowers, jasmine, mixed greens, and yellow lilies than the nose.

This is excellent and so unique. Striking white pepper, berry liquer and damson plum with a hint of warming cough syrup/campari on the nose, and a feather-light palate that’s so clean and juicy, crunchy, salty and tart. Love. — 5 days ago
