A story of politics and winemaking coming together, Domaine Méo-Camuzet is renowned not only for its prestigious holdings in the Côte d’Or but for the impeccable wines that are born from the same. Located in Vosne-Romanée in the Côte de Nuits, the estate claims a range of grand cru vineyards including Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot, Corton and Echézeaux in its notable portfolio. Most of the wine offerings are Pinot Noir-driven, with the common characteristics of delicacy and aromatic precision. Founded by Etienne Camuzet, a Parisian politician who purchased Burgundian plots in the early 1900s, the land was initially used for sharecropping contracts. Decades later, the estate was taken over by Jean-Nicholas Méo, who was determined to reclaim the plots from the sharecroppers and produce wine under his own label, Méo-Camuzet. Acting on the advisement of none other than Henri Jayer, who had ironically been one of Camuzet’s sharecroppers and bottled under his own label for over 40 years, Jean-Nicholas was able to achieve his goal of recapturing control over the estate. Coming full circle, Méo-Camuzetnow controls part of the Cros Parantoux premier cru site, the exact location that Jayer was responsible for elevating to widespread recognition. It has been said that Jean-Nicholas works to create wines that represent the region above all else. The domaine subscribes to organic farming practices, although has not sought certification in order to maintain full control of the land’s treatment. In addition to its grand crus, premier crus and several village level wines, Méo-Camuzet also launched a wine merchant division which sources fruit from Fixin, Marsannay, Chambolle and Nuit-Saint-Georges. While relatively young when compared to many domaines, Méo-Camuzet has nonetheless had an interesting history that has resulted in historically impressive wines.
