Domaine de la Vougeraie 'Les Damodes' Nuits Saint Georges 'Premier Cru' 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

"Les Damodes is a fine premier cru vineyard on the Vosne Romanée side of NuitsSt Georges, which gives the wine a little more elegance to balance theearthiness of mainstream Nuits. This is a full, rich, robust, plummy Burgundystill showing some tannins which will require a hearty accompaniment such asroast beef, or breast of duck, cooked rare. At six years old this wine iscoming into its own. A Burgundy of real personality." (Jasper Morris MW, BBR Burgundy Buyer)

Domaine de la Vougeraie was established in 1999 to bring together several extraordinary vineyards acquired over the years by the Boisset family; this union symbolized a new beginning for the vineyards inspired by a profound philosophy of excellence! Jean-Charles Boisset and his sister Nathalie chose to name this new winery after their parent’s house, La Vougeraie, as a nod to the domain’s large vineyard concentration in their hometown of Vougeot and as well as a tribute to their childhood roots and a challenge for the future. Convinced that sustainable practices are an essential part of making exceptional wines, the Boisset family chose to shift their farming practices of the new unified vineyards to biodynamic and organic farming. Since 2006, 100% of our vineyards are certified organic by Ecocert, although the majority had already received their certification several years before. Biodynamic practices are employed in all of our premier and grand cru vineyards. Read less

Really nice Pinot. Thin in body but has a lasting raspberry, spice and even (dare I say it) a slight tomato quality which isn't too bad. Would quite happily drink again.
