The Story

Perhaps the prettiest vineyard of the estate: oriented directly east, on the magic hill of Corton, in the northern part of the appellation in Ladoix-Serrigny, Clos Rognet is still surrounded by its old walls, whose charm is enhanced by the small size of the vineyard plot: just over one acre. The soil is of average depth, and fairly light in structure.

The vines are in perfect harmony with the stones: venerable... They were planted in the 20's with a selection which matures very early and which produces small cylindrical grapes, which could illustrate the chapter on Pinot fin in a viticultural text-book.

Corton is a wine which should be vinified with very little intervention; the concentration and the structure come naturally through a slow fermentation, and usually all you need to do is. Go along with it ?


Wine Information

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

Domaine Méo-Camuzet was founded at the beginning of the last century when Mr Étienne Camuzet began to select vineyards whose location and reputation were of particular interest to him. His daughter, Maria Noirot, inherited his vineyards but she herself had no children so, at her death in 1959, she bequeathed the domain to Jean Méo, who was then working in the staff of Général de Gaulle.
Maria Noirot et Jean Méo were distant relatives but the two families had close ties and Maria's will stated that "all should carry on", which of course has been respected. At that period, vintners under 'métayage', a sort of sharecropping agreement, were in charge of the vineyards and winemaking.
Jean Méo sold his portion of wines to famous local merchants. This agreement enabled him to pursue his Parisian career while keeping an eye on his Burgundian estate.
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. 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.

The objective is to make wines with structure and delicacy - with concentration as well as charm. The balance of a wine is essential: refinement and complexity are the hallmarks of great wines and represent the desired goals throughout the wine making and ageing processes. Of course, this notion cannot be separated from that of terroir. For many years, the wine estate has rejected the use of chemicals alone and attempts to encourage a natural balance by using authorized organic agricultural products and specific practices, including ploughing, by paying particular attention to the vine-growing techniques which attempt to prevent diseases and keep yields in check.
These practices are not just for show: their objective is to achieve a harmony between the vine and its environment and to allow the terroir and climate, specific to each vintage, to express themselves.

Written Notes

The 2001 Meo-Camuzet Corton Clos Rognet was a special wine. It had a deep, dark nose with lots of power. You could ‘smell the tannin’ in this ‘huge’ wine. Additional aromas of wet wool and slate morphed into lamb meat and resource-laden rock. Powerful, deep and dark all appeared in my notes again. This wine came across younger than most 2001s and had ‘twenty years to go,’ according to one. It was like ‘a glycerin umbrella’ per China Live, and this fantastic red wasn’t slowed down by a touch of burnt rubber on its finish, which was in the pedal to the metal family. This was a wow wine (95).
