About the Wine:
Méo-Camuzet is one of the most celebrated domaines of the Côte d’Or, located in the heart of prestigious Vosne-Romanée. The domaine boasts fourteen hectares of land in some of the most spectacular appellations and crus of Burgundy. The vineyard land in Burgundy is highly parceled out among families, which makes it rare for anyone to have enough vines to be able to bottle one grand cru, let alone the six that the Méos have. Founder Étienne Camuzet was not only a passionate vigneron, but a full-time politician, and spent most of his time in Paris, representing the Côte d’Or. In order to keep his land in use, he offered it to capable share-croppers to farm. By the time his daughter had inherited the estate, she found herself with no successors, so the estate was passed down to her closest relative, Jean Méo, who was also involved in politics:he served as a member of Charles DeGaulle’s cabinet. Jean's son Jean-Nicolas took over in 1985.

This historic Vosne-Romanée estate has a prestigious array of premier cru and grand cru holdings to its name, making its Hautes-Côtes de Nuits parcel stand apart as the humble outlier. A 3.5 hectare vineyard within the boundary of Flagey-Echézeaux sitting at altitude directly above the grand cru Echezaux, the Clos Saint Philibert is just a stone’s throw from some of the most prestigious terroir in all of Burgundy.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Decanter Magazine:
“This domaine-owned monopole is nearly 9ha in size and located in the commune of Flagey-Echézeaux, but above the village at 365m elevation, with an east/southeast exposition. Despite the elevation, the site ripens fruit well and in 2019 the grapes were 12.5% potential alcohol at harvest, with the concentration of the vintage meaning there is a lovely balancing freshness here to complement the pleasant, lemony fruit." - Charles Curtis MW (Oct 2020)

Vinous Media:
“The 2019 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc Clos St. Philibert came from vat and had been recently racked and unfined. It offers pretty honeysuckle and orange blossom scents on the nose. The palate is well balanced with sour lemon on the entry, moderate depth and a pleasant saline finish. Fine." - Neal Martin (Dec 2020)
