Meo Camuzet

Founded by Etienne Camuzet in the 1920s, the domaine acquired vineyards but didn’t come into its current form until Etienne’s daughter died without any direct heirs. In 1959, she passed the holdings to a distant relative, Jean Meo, and thus the estate was born Meo Camuzet. Jean had a successful career in politics in Paris which meant that the holdings were looked after under a number of metayage agreements, the most famous of which was with Henri Jayer. The wines were always sold to negociants under Jean Meo until 1985 when the domaine bottled its first eponymous wine. In 1988 under Jean’s son, Jean-Nicolas, the domaine started managing its own vineyards. He worked closely with Henri Jayer during this time to understand the vineyards and winemaking style that Jayer was known for.



It would be difficult to overstate the importance of France to the wine world. With a rich history of wine production across virtually all of France over the last thousand years many of the grape species that are known for producing benchmark wines from all over the world had their beginnings in France. Over centuries vignerons refined their focus on what grapes thrived and transmitted a sense of place.
