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
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Bursting with aromas of crisp Anjou pear, white flowers, pastry cream and orange oil, the 2020 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc Clos St. Philibert is medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with lively acids and a long, saline finish. It's unusually textural and dramatic this year."
"Domaine Méo-Camuzet Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc Clos St. Philibert White) The 2020 Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc Clos St. Philibert has a fresh pear and green apple scented bouquet. The palate is well balanced with a ripe orange zest and peachy notes, just a slight soft landing on the finish. Fine. Drink between 2023-2027."
