I first tasted the 2010 Damoy wines at the domaine back in 2012 and was knocked out at the quality. At the time he had another importer so there was no business to be done. In March this year I had the pleasure of tasting the 2014's and this time Pierre was looking for a new importer.
So here we are!
It would be accurate to say that the last decade has seen a monumental rise in the quality of wines at Domaine Pierre Damoy. It is a return to the glory days of the 1950's and 1960's when their exceptional vineyard holdings produced some monumental reds.
Damoy are the largest owners of Chambertin Clos de Beze with an enormous 5.36 hectares. They have a large portion of Chapelle-
Chambertin and half a hectare of Chambertin. The style is rich and powerful, in keeping with the fine pedigree of the vineyards.
The wines are extremely well reviewed and to introduce them to our customers I have assembled a special Gevrey 6-Bottle Tasting Pack. The Packs consists of one bottle each of the following wines:
Chambertin Grand Cru
Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru
Chapelle Chambertin Grand Cru
Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Tamisot Monopole
Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice
The Landed Price for this 6-Pack will be $2565.90. Normal Pre Arrival Price is $2181.00.
As a Special Introductory Offer I present this
6-Bottle Pack at $1925.00 - a 25% Savings
This represents a terrific opportunity to try these highly rated wines and also be first in line for the 2015's when they are available. They are classic, age-worthy wines in every sense.
Scores and tasting notes from Tim Atkin MW.
Chambertin Grand Cru: Late picked and concentrated, this comes from a 0.47 hectare parcel right next to the Clos de Bèze. It's a big, brooding Chambertin with plenty of tannin and oak and dark, inky, blackberry and liquorice flavours, with some pepper spice from whole bunches. 2022-32. 96 Points
Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru: The domaine's holdings of this Grand Cru are so extensive (5.36 hectares over four parcels) that it can afford to sell off much of its fruit and still make a wine as good as this. Concentrated, age worthy and with power in reserve, it's very rich, spicy and plush with lots of oak and the dark berry fruit to lap it up. 2022-32. 96 Points
Chapelle Chambertin Grand Cru:
Pierre Damoy has a stunning array of Gevrey Grands Crus, this 2.22 hectare parcel being one of them. This was a little marked by oak when I tasted at the domaine, but it has enough dense, smoky, palate-coating fruit to integrate in bottle. Firm, dense and built to last. 2020-28. 96 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Tamisot Monopole: 93 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice: 92 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin: 91 Points
