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 14 hectares of land in some of the most spectacular appellations and crus of Burgundy. Founder Étienne Camuzet was not only a passionate vigneron, but a full-time politician, and spent most of his time in Paris, representing the Côte d'Or. By the time his daughter had inherited the estate, she found herself with no successors, so the estate was passed down to her closest relative, Jean Méo. Jean was also deeply involved in national politics-he served as a member of Charles DeGaulle's cabinet. Consequently, he, too, had to direct the domaine from afar. In the early 1980s, as many of the métayeurs were starting to retire, it became clear that the domaine needed a new direction. Jean's son, Jean-Nicolas had also spent most of his life in Paris, but had an enormous passion for winegrowing. By 1985, it was his turn to take the helm. In lieu of continuing to rent out their highly-pedigreed vineyards, he made the bold decision to slowly start reclaiming the land for the domaine's own bottlings. He called upon the resident expert, one of Burgundy's greatest winemakers of all time, Henri Jayer, for guidance. Henri had spent over forty years farming parcels from Méo-Camuzet under his own label. For three years, he mentored Jean-Nicolas during the transition and finally decided to retire in 1988. Jean-Nicolas has since directed the winemaking in the cellar and managed sales. He has put the vineyards in the capable hands of Christian Faurois, son of one of domaine's métayeurs, who has dedicated himself to these vineyards since 1973.
We have visited this illustrious estate and tasted wine with Jean-Nicolas. He is extremely serious and detail-oriented with an underlying passion for the vines and the wines which he ultimately produces. Today Domaine Méo-Camuzet bottles four astounding grands crus (Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot, Corton Clos Rognet, and Échezeaux, with two more Cortons soon on the way), ten premier crus (from the communes of Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-St-Georges, Chambolle-Musigny, and Fixin), several village wines including this Vosne-Romanee, one Bourgogne Rouge, and only one white. Jean-Nicolas aims for balance and purity of fruit, which he accomplishes with terrific success. Though delicate and fine, even in their youth, the paradoxical concentration and intensity of these wines make them ideal for long aging.

BurghoundHere the expressive nose combines notes of spice, various floral elements and a range of both red and dark pinot fruit aromas. The wonderfully, indeed seductively textured medium weight plus flavors brim with plenty of dry extract that buffers the firm and ripe tannins on the sleek, muscular and strikingly persistent finale. This is excellent and should amply reward extended keeping.

Wine SpectatorAn elegant yet firmly structured version that evokes black currant, black cherry, iron and spice flavors, with a languid finish of toasty oak. Subtle, showing a slightly darker profile than some of its peers. Best from 2021 through 2035. 3 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots includes 15% whole bunch this year and finished its malolactic earlier according to Jean-Nicolas Méo. It has a more lush and open bouquet than the Nuits St Georges Les Murgers with patisserie scents infusing the rounded, red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, quite fresh and tensile with hints of sorbet orange and white pepper towards the rather strict finish. I prefer the aromatics to the palate just at this moment, but they should even out by the time of bottling. Drink Date: 2018-2028.
