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.
Meo-Camuzet Frere et Soeurs is the négociant entity of the family domaine, and works closely with local growers to source the best fruit available in some of Burgundy’s finest terroirs. Vines are tended with the same best practices that the family espouses. The Méos oversee vineyard management, and they care for the wines in the cellars with the same attention to detail and respect of terroir that they do those of the domaine.
Ratings & Reviews
"A ripe yet cool and restrained nose speaks of liqueur-like aromas of red and dark pinot fruit laced with hints of earth and the sauvage. The rich, palate coating and energetic middle weight flavors possess good depth on the firm and youthfully austere finale. This is sufficiently structured to need at least a few years of bottle age and a wine that should reward 10 to 12." (Jan 2020)
