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.
AOC Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru, Cote de Nuits, Bourgogne
Country of Origin:
100% Pinot Noir
A discreet touch of wood frames the wonderfully seductive and intensely spicy character that adds real breadth and depth to the mostly black berry fruit notes though plum and currant notes appear as well, the latter of which can also be found on the rich, generous and full-bodied flavors that are beautifully balanced on the classy, pure, velvety and dusty finish where the tannins are also firm but quite fine. A
stunner of a wine as this is really quite sexy and very Vosne. In a word, impressive.
An exuberantly fresh and ripe nose of cassis, black cherry, violet and a wonderful panoply of spice elements. The rich, sense and overtly powerful medium weight plus flavors possess superb density along with an almost pungent minerality before culminating in a dusty, indeed almost chalky, finish that seems to go on and on. The firm tannins are already well-integrated and this should effortlessly reward extended cellaring.
