Notes from the Winemaker:
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.

Ratings & Reviews

90-92 Points Robert Parkers Wine Advocate:
"The 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges derives from parcels in Au Bas de Combes, Aux Athes and La Petite Charmotte. Offering up a deep-pitched bouquet of sweet berry fruit, spices, rose petals and dark chocolate, it's medium to full-bodied, elegant and perfumed, with an enveloping core of fruit, powdery tannins and good length on the finish. This is a fine bottling that will be comparatively accessible young this year." - William Kelley (1/9/2020)

Vinous Media:
"From three parcels including one from the domaine in Bas du Combe, the 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Village has a bright red cherry and cranberry scented bouquet with hints of blue fruit. The medium-bodied palate features supple tannins, fine acidity and a little compactness toward the slightly chocolaty finish, which needs to subsume the one-third new oak by the time of bottling." - Neal Martin (1/2020)
