Domaine Méo-Camuzet - Vosne-Romanée at its best

 

Domaine Méo-Camuzet is one of the most famous producers in legendary Côte de Nuits village Vosne-Romanée, and therefore in all of Burgundy. The vineyards, which are almost all farmed organically, produce some of the most sought after wines famous for their delicate aromatic concentration.

In earlier days, large parts of the Méo-Camuzet's vineyards were farmed by sharecroppers, leaving only a small portion of vines under the domaine's control. One of them was the godfather of modern Burgundy, Henri Jayer. With the goal of having estate-grown fruit and bottling under the domaine's own label, many plots were regained, also with Henri's help and expertise.

Today, the Domaine holds parcels in the most prestigious vineyards - RichebourgClos de VougeotCorton and Echézeaux. One of their prime sites, however, is the Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Aux Brulées", which is pretty much Grand-Cru quality, and produces full-bodied, concentrated wines with spicy characteristics.
