Domaine Meo-Camuzet

Region: Burgundy

Meo-Camuzet was founded in 1902 and is located at the heart of Vosne-Romanée in the Burgundy region of France. The impressive 14 hectare farm is the largest vineyard owned by a single family in the region. This prized domain was left in the care of share-croppers in the earlier years of its existence. In the last 30 years, however, the Meo-Camuzet family has reclaimed and reorganized their operations, making Meo-Camuzet one of the most productive and remarkable wineries in the Burgundy region. Since WWII, the winery was overseen by resident expert Henri Jayer, with his forty plus years of experience on that very farm. In 1985 Jayer began mentoring the young Jean-Nicolas Meo-Camuzet so that Jean-Nicolas could take it over. Jayer passed away in the year 2006 but his legacy shall forever remain at Domaine Meo-Camuzet.

Each wine produced here has its own plot of vines that are used only for that particular vintage. The largest plot for a single vintage on the Meo-Camuzet cru is for the Hautes Cotes de Nuits Blanc at 3.5 hectares of Chardonnay. The other 16 varieties of wine produced at this Burgundy estate are Pinot Noir. Some of the vines, particularly the Chardonnay have only been grown here since the 1990's; however, the Pinot Noir vines that grow the fruit for the Corton Clos Rognet Grand Cru have been producing since the 1920's. Many of the Pinot Noir vines are so old that their exact age is unknown but have been estimated to have existed since the Middle Ages, so potentially some of the Pinot vines have existed here from the 5th to the 15th centuries. This is mind-boggling when you consider that most people have trouble keeping a common house plant alive. There is no shortage of agricultural expertise at Domaine Meo-Camuzet.

Meo is best known for their two flagship offers, the Vosne Romanée Cros Parantoux, and Richebourg. Meo also excels in Clos Vougeot, Corton Rognet, and Vosne Romanée Brulees.
