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
"An elegant and ripe nose combines notes of violet, red and dark currant and a whiff of crushed fennel. There is an appealing texture to the middle weight flavors that terminate in firm, serious and youthfully austere finish. This is really quite good for its level and worth considering." *Outstanding Top Value!* (1/2022)
"The 2020 Bourgogne “Côte d’Or” Rouge from Domaine Méo-Camuzet is a good, solid example of the appellation. The nose delivers scents of ripe dark berries, black cherries, bitter chocolate, a nice touch of soil and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is fullish, tangy and well-balanced, with just a touch of backend tannin perking up the long finish. Good juice. (Drink between 2024-2035." (12/2021)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Unfurling in the glass with aromas of cherries, red berries and loamy soil, the 2020 Bourgogne Côte d'Or Cuvée Étienne Camuzet is medium to full-bodied, rich and layered, with excellent concentration, lively acids and ripe tannins. Jean-Nicolas Méo began his harvest on August 23, and he has produced another fine vintage at this Vosne-Romanée reference point. Méo has always done well in warm, sunny vintages (as a lovely bottle of his 2003 Nuits Lavières recently reminded me), and 2020 is no exception. Indeed, for a vintage that was generally somewhat primary and frequently tightly wound this winter, Méo's wines—habitually quite backward after 12 months' élevage—were remarkably put together and expressive. Mostly landing at around 13.5% alcohol, they're vibrant, concentrated and nicely balanced, showing considerable aging potential." -WK (1/2022)
Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy:
"Fine mid purple, very lovely fruit, optimum ripeness. Even perhaps a touch richer than that on the palate but does not exceed maximum. A fresh dark raspberry juice that is every persistent. Tasted: December 2021."
