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.

At the foot of "la Tâche” and "les Malconsorts”, in a slightly deeper clay soil, the winery holds two plots of a total surface area of about 4 acres. With its classic eastward orientation and good supply of water, it is a fairly "solar” vineyard which cannot be considered as a late ripener. This organic 1er Cru from Vosne-Romanée is exactly what you’d expect: seductive, elegant, and seriously beautiful.

Tasting Notes

Notes of red fruits, wet earth, and mushroom jump from the palate and lead to a lasting finish. While this wine is approachable in its youth, it is also certain to evolve gracefully over the next 5-7 years. 

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Decanter Magazine:
“Méo owns two plots of Chaumes, totalling just over 2ha at the foot of the slope below Malconsorts. One was planted in the 1950s, the other in the 1970s, and the result is a powerful wine with pronounced aromas of ripe dark cherries, liquorice and a hint of smoke. The winemaking is not shy - punched down frequently and aged in 50% new oak casks - and this is decidedly tannic, and full-bodied, yet its approachable, highly drinkable nature makes it an absolute delight.” – Charles Curtis MW (Oct 2020)

92-94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
“Aromas of cherries, dark chocolate, sweet soil tones and potpourri preface Méo's 2019 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Chaumes, a medium to full-bodied, layered and elegantly muscular wine with a generous core of fruit framed by rich and powdery tannins. This is quite a virile, powerful Chaumes this year, and it will reward bottle age.” – William Kelley (Jan 2021)

90-92 Points – Vinous Media:
“The 2019 Vosne-Romanée Les Chaumes 1er Cru is very concentrated and powerful on the nose of crushed-violet- and iodine-infused ripe black cherries and crème de cassis. A little over the top, maybe? The palate is very ripe, with layers of sweet cassis fruit, lush and precocious at the expense of terroir expression. A thoroughly pleasurable Les Chaumes, for sure, but not as intellectual as some of Méo-Camuzet’s other cuvées.” – Neal Martin (Dec 2020)
