Domaine Pierre Damoy, Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru 1994

Damoy Chapelle 1994 #1

Twenty-years on tasting.

Mature garnet, pink-orange rim. It’s unadorned and organic like Kentucky bluegrass.  Sweetly-mature with a tenderness, it smells and tastes of sous-bois, bouquet-garni, stewed damson and juniper, well-hung game.  Then the poverty of its shallow subsoils shine through; it finishes with a mineral streak, urgent and focused.  Keeping good grip on itself.  An exquisite permutation of mineral and Pinot Noir, possessed of grand cru emotions, tinged with beauty and sadness.  For drinking soon.
