...striking. Expressive floral notes add lift as in a beautifully delineated, translucent Burgundy... Pomegranate, cherry pit, mint, cinnamon and wild flowers are pushed forward...boasts gorgeous complexity and plenty of nuance...

PRODUCER

Pierre Damoy

Pierre Damoy is a 25-acre estate in Cote de Nuits. It is run by Pierre Damoy who took over from his uncle in 1992. Under the younger Damoy the estate has become known for Grand Crus from Chambertin-Clos de Beze and Chapelle-Chambertin. Clive Coates calls Pierre Damoy “an important domain…Quality is now what it should be.”

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Gevrey-Chambertin, Chapelle-Chambertin

Chapelle-Chambertin is a 13.5-acre Grand Cru vineyard just north of Griotte-Chambertin in the village of Gevrey-Chambertin. Its name comes from the chapel of Notre Dame de Beze, a chapel built in 1155 by the monks of Abbey de Beze and demolished several centuries later during the French Revolution. There is not much slope in this vineyard, nor much soil. Louis Jadot and Claude Dugat have small parcels here, though the largest landholders are Pierre Damoy, 5 acres; Ponsot 1.7 acres; and Jean and Jean-Louis Trapet, 1.5 acres.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
