2011 Pierre Damoy Bourgogne Rouge

In Burgundy, Uncategorized on February 28, 2017 at 12:16 pm

This Bourgogne Rouge is cut from the cloth of all Domaine Damoy wines – dominated by Gevrey Chambertin.  However, try as Pierre Damoy might, putting grand cru wine into a Bourgogne-priced bottle is not a good business strategy.  So here, in this bottle, he blends in the vineyards of Fixin and Couchey.  It makes perfect sense – Fixin and Couchey both touch Gevrey Chambertin to the north and hold a similar fruit profile, yet don’t command the same fruit prices.  Meaning we get something that tastes like a Gevrey Chambertin (and nearly a premier cru at that) for the price of a humble Bourgogne.

And Pierre make a broad style of red Burgundy – on the nose are loads of blackberries, blackcurrant, notes of truffle, and a touch of earth.  The palate is expansive – yes, it’s a Bourgogne, but remember the blend – Gevrey Chambertin comes through richly across the mid-palate, accentuating the fruit characteristics present on the nose, filling in with a black cherry profile that delightfully accentuates the smooth, perfectly mature richness of the body.  This is not some tart cranberry-fruited red Burgundy, this is a gorgeously aged and beautiful Gevrey from one of the region’s top producers.
