We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
This is a very rare and prestigious monopole white from the illustrious Domaine Meo-Camuzet. Planted to Chardonnay in the early 1990s in clay, limestone and gravel soils, the Clos Saint-Philibert vineyard is located in the Bourgogne Hautes- Cotes de Nuits appellation. Look for fresh, fruity, floral aromas with white-fleshed peaches, citrus zest and green pear. Rich and vibrant with delicious flavors that culminate in a lemon-suffused finish.
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.
