Description

Description:

Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Damodes, Joseph Drouhin is a powerful and elegant Burgundy wine. It's fragrant with cedar and juicy with cherries and blackberries, with a hint of sweet spice on the finish.

At the heart of the Cote 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 is kept at 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 just 40 hl/ha are purposely low, in order for the grapes to reveal every nuance of the terroir.

The name 'Nuits' may come from 'noyer' (walnut tree), a not very frequent tree in this region. The hillsides in Burgundy were in fact covered with oak trees at the time the Romans arrived. 'Damodes' might evoke a divine feminine trinity protecting earthly fruit.
