Domaine Méo-Camuzet is a wine producer located in Vosne-Romanée in the Côte de Nuits. It produces some of the most celebrated wines from the Côte d'Or from a range of grand cru vineyards, including Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot, Corton and Echézeaux. Most of Méo-Camuzet's wines are made from Pinot Noir, and are known for their delicate aromatic concentration.
The founder of the estate was Etienne Camuzet, an early-20th Century politician based in Paris, who offered parts of his estate to a variety of sharecroppers to farm. Eventually, it came into the hands of Jean-Nicholas Méo in 1986, who realized that the extensive sharecropping meant that only a small portion of vines were under the domaine's control. He set out a long-term strategy to regain the plots from the sharecroppers who were currently working them, with the goal of eventually having estate-grown fruit and bottling under his own label, Méo-Camuzet.
One of these landholders was iconic Burgundy producer Henri Jayer. He had farmed the domaine's land to bottle under his own label for about 40 years. He retired in 1988 and helped to advise Jean-Nicholas on the reacquisition of his vines. Méo-Camuzet now has 14 hectares (35 acres) of vines, including a part of the Cros Parantoux Premier Cru site, which was made famous by Jayer.
Most of the vineyards are farmed as organically as possible, but Méo-Camuzet has chosen not to be certified, in order to be able to treat vines as the vintage dictates. Along with the grand cru wines, there are several wines made from premier cru vineyards along the Côte de Nuits, as well as a number of more generic village-level and Bourgogne wines.

A more complex if slightly less elegant nose features aromas of both blue and black pinot fruit that carries more evident sauvage nuances that give way to velvety medium full-bodied flavors that also possess plenty of dry extract and a real sense of volume on the wonderfully long finish where the supporting tannins are almost invisible. I quite like this as there is a lovely feeling of tension on the explosive finish.
