Domaine Pierre Damoy Chambertin Clos de Bèze 2011
Damoy owns 5.5 hectares of this spectacular grand cru. Clos de Bèze lies to the north of Chambertin, at the same altitude of 275 to 300 meters. The incline is steeper, especially at the top, and the brown, highly pebbled soils are shallower, often exposing the bedrock below. This wine is sourced from two mid-slope sites: 70% comes from the southern part of the Clos, where the vines pre-date 1920, and the balance is from the far northern section, planted in 1947 and 1985. The combination of these vine plots gives this powerful wine its broad and complex dark-fruit aromas with hints of gingerbread, licorice and exotic spices. The expansive palate-filled with layers of ripe-fruit expression-is framed by muscular tannins and culminates in a seriously intense finish.
