About this Item

2008 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Chaumes
2 (1 x 2) 750ml

Domaine Méo-Camuzet is one of Burgundy’s star properties and is known for its concentrated, rich and serious wines. Until 30 years ago, most of the domaine's vineyards were leased out and the wine was sold to négociants. The domaine only began bottling in 1985 and the various sharecropping agreements, including one with Henri Jayer, have all come to an end. Today, Jean-Nicolas Méo and Christian Faurois, a former sharecropper turned right-hand man, manage the domaine and produce some of the Côte d'Or’s finest wines. The domaine now proudly holds 2.5 hectares of Grands Crus and 8 hectares in some of the finest Premier Cru sites in Nuits-St-Georges and Vosne-Romanée. Most of the vineyards are farmed organically.

Critics Ratings

‘A discreet application of wood sets off ripe and overtly spicy aromas of plum, dark currant and cherry. There is both good volume and richness to the supple, round and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess solid depth and persistence on the lingering and lightly saline-inflected finale. This is really quite pretty and while it hasn't quite arrived at its peak it's so close that there would be no harm in opening a bottle now. Drink 2018+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 91/100 (Apr 2016
