Domaine Méo-Camuzet is indirectly about the legendary Henri Jayer. Jayer started with a legacy of no more than 3 hectares, in the Grand Cru vineyard Echézeaux and the Premier Cru vineyard Beaux Monts in Vosne-Romanée. But immediately after the Second World War, he signed a contract with the old widow Noirot-Camuzet to look after her 10 hectares of vineyards.
He was allowed to bottle 50% of the grapes under his own name. They were not the least vineyards. The old widow owned several top vineyards such as Richebourg, Les Brûlées in Vosné-Romanée and Les Meurgers in Nuits-St.-Georges. This became the springboard to success. As early as the 1950s, he was producing wines under the name of his own domain. The contract allowed Henri Jayer to produce a serious amount of wine and build the reputation of his domain. The widow's death in 1959 did not change that. She left the vineyards to her cousin Jean Méo, but he was more interested in politics and continued the contract. The name of the domaine was changed to Méo-Camuzet. The contract with Jayer only came to an end when Jean-Nicolas's son, Jean-Nicolas, showed interest in making the wines himself in the mid-1980s. Jayer was already heading towards retirement at that time. Henri Jayer's name will always be associated with the Vosné-Romanée premier cru vineyard Cros Parantoux. Cros Parantoux is located high above Richebourg. The special feature of the vineyard is the high location of the vineyard and the poor soil. Jayer cared for the vineyard to perfection to use its full potential. The first 100% Cros Parantoux was bottled in 1978 and the last in 2001. After that, the Cros Parantoux were made by his cousin Emmanuel Rougot and Jean-Nicolas Méo.
Jean-Nicolas Méo is widely regarded as one of the very best producers of red Burgundy. His wines have a unique style. They have a sensual velvety texture, complexity, richness, depth and an enchanting perfume. For several generations, the Camuzet family has owned some of the most highly regarded vineyards in and around the village of Vosne-Romanée. About 12 hectares in total, spread over some of the most illustrious fields in all of Burgundy (Clos de Vougeot, Corton, Richebourg, Echézeaux and several prime ministers in Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-Saint-Georges)
