Domaine Pierre Damoy

Pierre Damoy is arguably best known for owning most of Clos de Bèze which is not a bad thing to be known for. He owns over 5 hectares of this mighty vineyard, which is about 50% of it. He doesn’t keep everything he produces. It is probably fair to say that most people producing negotiant Clos de Bèze are buying their fruit from him!. Still it works well. He gets lots of cash in early and knows that this extravagant form of selection ensures he produces the best possible. Aside from this vineyard he also owns some Chambertin and some Chapelle Chambertin, along with a great little monopole of Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Clos Tamisot’ which is pretty much his back garden. He picks his old vines fairly late and often has agonisingly small yields which produce wines of immense concentration which need time to mellow and evolve. He doesn’t extract too much but does use large percentages of new oak, though the wines have the density to absorb them. Inevitably volumes are fairly limited.
