At the heart of the Côte de Nuits, the town of Nuits has its own Hospices, world-renowned vineyards and, of course, ancient traditions. The Premier Cru Damodes is located in the north part of the Nuits-Saint-Georges vineyard, above the “Boudots”, near Vosne-Romanée, with an east exposure. The vineyard is planted on on clay mixed with limestone pebbles, this area produces wines of great finesse. Vine density of 10,000 vinestocks/ha in order to extract as much as possible from the terroir and limit the production of each vine stock. Yields of 40 hl/ha – purposely low, in order for the grapes to reveal every nuance of the terroir. History & tradition: the name “Nuits” may come from “noyer” (walnut tree), a not very frequent tree in this region. As a matter of fact, the hillsides in Burgundy were covered with oak trees at the time the Romans arrived. “Damodes” might evoke a divine feminine trinity protecting earthly fruit.
Powerful, elegant Burgundy, fragrant with cedar and juicy with cherries and blackberries, with a hint of sweet spice on the finish.
