Faiveley Nuits-St-Georges Premier Cru les Damodes 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

91-94 points Fine Wine Review: Damodes lies just above Boudots on the border with Vosne-Romanée at an altitude of 280 to 340 meters. Until recently, the vineyard was too high up to regularly make topflight wine, but global warming is having its effect. Additionally, Faiveley has recently been making changes in the vineyard and the vines (planted in 1983 and 1989) are achieving mature status. The nose here is deep with dark fruit and floral aromas. The wine is round in the mouth with sensual black cherry fruit, good depth, and good length. (12/30/14)
