Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Blackberries, black cherries, and candied black raspberries can be found in the nose of the medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Chambertin Clos de Beze. This wine has outstanding depth and concentration. Loads of lively red cherries, strawberries, and blueberries can be found in its velvety-textured personality. Additionally, this wine possesses an exceptionally long, pure, and super-ripe tannin-filled finish.
Range: 92-94

This still has buckets of pinot extract with good concentration, palate staining intensity and terrific length. It has also put on a good deal of weight since my review from barrel and it has begun to shut down with its ripe but austere tannins beginning to dominate on the finish.

Domaine Pierre Damoy, France
When at a blind tasting of English experts in 2007 of the wines of all the best estates of Burgundy Damoy’s Clos de Beze was ranked equal best wine with Rousseau’s Clos de Beze, it not only confirmed the ranking of the vineyard it took the Domaine Damoy to the super-star status from which it has not looked back. Since the middle of the 1930’s it had owned vineyards in the Grand Crus of Chapelle-Chambertin as well as Clos de Beze where with 5.36 hectares of vines principally planted in the 1920’s they are the largest owner. The Domaine had leased out much of its prime vineyard holding and fallen in reputation until the present Pierre took over in 1992. He instituted a mammoth rework of the estate vineyards, reclaiming them as the rental agreements expired and introducing a regime a biodynamic viticulture together with a green harvest to reduce the already low cropping levels further. In the cellar he introduced modern practices and increased the proportion of new oak used.

Gevrey-Chambertin Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

This small village is home to the Grands Crus in the farthest northerly stretches of Côte de Nuits and is famous for some of the deepest and firmest Burgundian Pinot Noir.

Gevrey boasts nine Grands Crus, the best of which are arguably Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As with all of the fragmented vineyards of Burgundy, it isn’t easy to differentiate between the two, which are situated adjacent with Clos de Bèze slightly further up the hill than Le Chambertin. Clos de Bèze has a shallower soil and if you’re really counting, may produce wines less intense but more likely to charm. Some compare Le Chambertin in both power and plentitude only to the prized Romanée-Conti Grand Cru farther south in Vosne-Romanée.

Two other Grands Crus vineyards, Mazis-Chambertin (also written Mazy-) and Latricières-Chambertin command almost as much regard as Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. The upper part of Mazy, called Les Mazis Haut is the best and Latricières-Chambertin offers an abundance of juicy fruit and a silky texture in the warmer vintages.

Other Grands Crus are Ruchottes-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Mazoyères-Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin.

The most respected Pinot Noir wines from Gevrey-Chambertin are robust and powerful but at the same time, velvety and expressive: black fruit, black liquorice and chocolate come into play. After some time in the bottle, the wines are harmonious with bright and sometimes candied fruit, and aromas of musk, truffle and forest floor. These have staying power.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
