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


93 Points - Decanter Magazine:
“From three domaine-owned parcels in the lieu-dit Bas de Combe, near Vosne-Romanée that are 60years of age. The old vines give fruit that delivers a wine of charming red fruit character, with a floral cast. The feel on the palate is silky and fresh, yet not lacking in structure.” – Charles Curtis MW (Oct 2020)

89-91 Points - Robert Parkers Wine Advocate:
"The 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges wafts from the glass with notes of cherries, wild berries, sweet soil tones, peonies and raw cocoa. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, its ample core of ripe but lively fruit largely conceals the wine's powdery structuring tannins.” – William Kelley (Jan 2021)
