The first traces of the Méo-Camuzet estate date back to the 17th century; the estate was already being used for wine-growing at that time. In the 19th century, the Méo family decided to turn to studies and professions more intellectual than vineyard work. The vines still remain in the family during all these generations, they are just not much used. Jean Méo is the representative of the 3rd generation. He studied at a very prestigious university and became a Polytechnicien and Engineer. In 1946, Jean Méo inherited the Vosne-Romanée estate from his uncle, Etienne Camuzet. Aware of the potential of this land, he decided to exploit it at its true value. While continuing his life and his hectic career in Paris, Jean Méo manages the exploitation remotely. Aware that French wines are highly appreciated internationally, he starts to develop his international sales. In 1981, Jean Méo renames the estate ‘Méo-Camuzet’ in homage to his uncle.
In 1989, the fourth generation returned to the estate and took over the reins. Jean Nicolas Méo is trained by Henri Jayer and Christian Faurois. With this training, he then developed his own winemaking technique, and at the same time developed the company’s image and distribution channels; reserved for the greatest restaurants, wine merchants and certain private individuals.See more
