Domaine Méo-Camuzet was founded at the beginning of the last century. As of 1985, the estate began selling under its own label, directly from the cellars. And after 1988, it progressively took charge of the vineyards as the contacts with the vintners expired. Currently, 15 acres are cared for directly, while 13.5 remain under contract. All the appellations of the domain are harvested and vinified by us.
Jean-Nicolas Méo, son of Jean Méo, then took responsibility and is now in charge of technical and administrative matters. He is helped in these tasks by Henri Jayer who advises him on winemaking and by Christian Faurois, vineyard manager.
Temperature control is the essential contribution which modern techniques have made to our work, which, apart from that, remains very traditional. There is not much extraction, the harvest does not undergo too much treatment or manipulation: little sulfur, little chaptalization or acidification, only pigeages at the end of the fermentation. That is how the individual character of each wine can express itself... but the grapes must be of excellent quality from the beginning!
