News from the BIVB:
THE MEO-CAMUZET ESTATE ACQUIRES TWO PLOTS IN CORTON
In December, the Méo-Camuzet estate (Vosne-Romanée) acquired a beautiful 68-are plot in Corton Perrières and a 19-are plot in
Corton La Vigne au Saint. Both are planted with old vines of fine Pinot Noir. The estate has been able to use grapes from these two
terroirs as of its 2009 vintage, widening its selection of Corton reds.
The Méo-Camuzet estate already owned an enclosed vineyard of 45 ares at Rognet-et-Corton. Its range also includes some of the
most prestigious Côte de Nuits appellations: Clos de Vougeot, Richebourg, Echezeaux, Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru, etc.
CHAMPY TAKES OVER THE LALEURE-PIOT ESTATE
The firm Champy (Beaune) is currently finalising its takeover of the Laleure-Piot estate (Pernand-Vergelesses). This will come into
effect with the 2010 vintage. Champy’s cultural approach (it has organic certification) will therefore be implemented as of the next
harvest. The estate has around ten hectares, with a range of appellations including Pernand Villages and Premiers Crus, as well as red
Grands Crus (Corton Rognet and Corton Bressandes) and whites (Corton-Charlemagne).
