Burghound, January 2001,
This is the best Chambertin I have ever had chez Damoy (yes, better than the 93) as it's classy, rich, complex and long; there is excellent balance here even while sporting 13.5% alcohol. While it could benefit from a bit more concentration, it clearly demonstrates that real progress is being achieved with this wine.

This was the best wine among the three grands crus from barrel and so it remains the best from bottle as well. Extremely dense, in fact almost massive with impressively rich, ripe yet nicely complex flavors and penetrating length. This is a very powerful wine with noticeable warmth on the finish and as classic Chambertin should, this will require a decade to show its best.Drink: 2009-2016.

Domaine Pierre Damoy
The domaine boasts impressive Grand Cru holdings, especially the 5.6 hectares of Chambertin Clos de Bèze, making them its largest owner. The wines are rich and true to the styles of each vineyard.
The greatest village in terms of notable grand cru vineyards, Gevrey Chambertin has no less than 9 of them including its most famous Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and includes a premier cru vineyard that many people deem grand cru in quality - Clos St. Jacques. It encompasses approximately 400 hectares under vine also making it the largest top quality vineyard area in the Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin has many followers who seek out its deeply coloured, robust and textured wines. They are often firmer than the neighbouring appellations of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée and can take several years to soften once released. Due to its size and reputation, the list of excellent producers is noteworthy and many are worth seeking out.
