new vines for méo-camuzet and champy…


News from the BIVB:

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.

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).

    I wondered what would happen to the Belland Corton’s, although their holding in Clos de la Vigne au Saint was listed as 0.49 ares not 0.19 (the only other owner is Latour). Is it possible this is a typo as I think it improbable that Belland has only sold a section off?

      Now you’ve got me Phil – it could be a typo – I’m sure I’ve seen another Vigne au Saint label/reference in the last month though. I’ll have to think about that….

    Just remembered, seen on Coates that Domaine des Croix purchased the Belland Greves and 49 ares Clos de la Vigne au Saint and Domaine Meo Camuzet purchased the 36 ares of Corton Charlemagne,
    curious eh?

      Hi Phil – I told you I’d seen another refernce to it 😉

      Here’s what somebody close to the sale told me:

      “Clive’s infos are not really accurate because Méo is not getting any Corton-Charlemagne, rather Corton Perrières and part of the Vigne au Saint (0.19ha) which is shared with Domaine des Croix (0.29ha). Des Croix is also getting Aloxe Corton “Les Boutières” and Corton Grèves. And I’m actually wondering why Latour calls it Clos de la Vigne au Saint because it doesn’t look like a Clos…”

    Thanks for that Bill.

    Three owners it is then, Belland also used to label theirs as Clos dela Vigne au Saint must be another without walls. On another angle do you know who is getting the Belland Morgeot Clos Chareau ?
