Chambertin Grand Cru, Pierre Damoy - 2018

  • Provenance: Burgundy
  • Appellation: Chambertin
  • Domain: Pierre Damoy
  • Grape variety(ies): Pinot noir
  • On-call time: 30 years
  • Alcohol degree: 14.5%
  • 213 Classement: Grand Cru
It is the lord of Burgundy, but perhaps also the most uncompromising, earthy cru: you have to wait for it! Darker and fuller-bodied than the Clos de Bèze at the same stage, it is dense and strict, opening up slowly to liquorice and wild nuances bordering on decadence, but typical of the cru. Only a slow ageing in glass will allow it to develop its inimitable bouquet of spices and its endless, vibrant, rectilinear structure. A myth. Tim Atkin : 95/100

Viticulture

Long before the current AOCs, Chambertin and Clos de Bèze were already the head of Gevrey's vintages. It is important to know that in 1219, when these parcels were sold by the abbey of Bèze, these two climates were mixed up. The name Chambertin probably comes from the field belonging to a certain Bertin. More recently, the vineyard could still be seen facing north-south, but this has not been the case since 1976.

Oenology

Etienne Damoy still calls this parcel "le travers". The estate's parcel is located in the extreme north-west of the appellation, the characteristics of the soil and the grapes produced are very similar to those of the adjoining parcel in Clos-de-Bèze, and the planting took place at the same time (1976), with the same selection.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Domain
Now run by the fifth generation, this 11-hectare family estate owns nearly half of the Chapelle-Chambertin and Clos-de-Bèze Grands Crus, but also a large one-hectare plot in Chambertin. Nothing less. The property was founded by Pierre's great-great-grandfather, Julien, and has never been divided. Pierre Damoy succeeded his uncle, Jacques, in 1992. The estate is also an important source of grapes for certain Beaune négociants who have fixed areas reserved for them on long-term contracts. He also buys grapes for certain appellations that are not classified as Grand Cru, such as Fixin Mogottes.A man of character, secretive and discreet, passionate about rare plants and agriculture in all its forms, Pierre Damoy has a background in agricultural research. And despite the use of numerous organic treatments on the estate, he is not satisfied with what he considers to be the "excessive dependence" of organic viticulture on copper compounds, which always end up in the soil, even though they are approved for "organic" treatments in the form of Bordeaux mixture. As a true man of the field, with good farming sense, he claims respect for his land and a sustainable, perennial culture. His soils are ploughed and no herbicides or pesticides are used in the vineyards. It must also be said that in addition to the terroirs, the very old vines are the other treasure of the estate, with the...
