Domaine Pierre Damoy in Burgundy is one of the prize domaines of Gevrey Chambertin. Pierre Damoy took over from his uncle, Jacques Damoy, in 1992. The domaine has been in the family for five generations, founded by Pierre's great-great-grandfather, Julien. Today, the domaine is 10.6 hectares and eight of the ten are located in the most-esteemed Grand Cru in Burgundy.
Offers ample flesh and a cherry core, all supported by a firm, racy structure, but the tannins will require time to resolve. Verges on creamy in texture, with mineral and spice notes complementing the fruit. Terrific finish. Best from 2021 through 2040. 20 cases imported. Rating: 95 Points; Bruce Sanderson; Wine Spectator
A ripe but distinctly cool and reticent nose displays grudging notes of cassis, black cherry, earth and a broad range of spices that is also trimmed in enough wood to notice. The very dense and serious big-bodied flavors exhibit an intense minerality on the overtly powerful and hugely long finish. Note well that this is a very structured, old school and completely backward Chambertin that will need close to two decades to arrive at its full majority. Patience absolutely required.
