Description :

"Les Damodes" is situated on the northern part of the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation, just to the south of the premier cru appellations of Vosne-Romanée. The vineyard name "Les Damodes" comes from "Dame" meaning lady. Legend says that there were fairies that inhabited this rocky hillside above the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges, once covered by quarries and woods! But more likely it was the presence of rocky forms that looked like tall ladies in long dresses that gave the parcel its name. Known locally as "les Dames Hautes", "hautes" (meaning tall), hence the pronounciation has become "damaudes" then "damodes". Planted on a parcel with an easterly exposure, the vines grow on poor, limestone soils. Elegance and finesse perfectly characterize this wine.

Aging :

10 to 12 months in oak barrels, 40% new

Tasting Note :

The Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Chatelots» 2012 has an intense garnet colour. The nose is powerful with aromas of cherry and liquorice. The tannins are present but not dominant. It is very fresh on the palate with a very good persistence.Of a deep ruby color, our Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru "Les Damodes" 2013 has a nose with notes of coffee and undergrowth. This wine, rich and complex, reveals a beautiful length on the palate. Silky tannins and blackcurrant and blackberry aromas.
