Neal Martin, October 2015,
Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Tamisot from Pierre Damoy has a composed and very refined bouquet of fresh raspberry and wild strawberry - perfumed and very natural. The palate is medium-bodied, a bit of a tart on the entry with sharp acidity, pointed with a peppery, brine-tinged finish. The nose gives more than the palate at the moment, but overall it has charm. Drink 2017-2022
Antonio Galloni, November 2014,
The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Tamisot is another powerhouse, but the overall impression is of a wine that has too much tannin for its essentially mid-weight frame. It will be interesting to see if the tannins soften over time, but today I don't see that as the most probably outcome. Drink 2020-2029
Burghound, January 2015,
This is exceptionally ripe for the vintage and stops just short of displaying a jammy character with its aromas of plum, dark currant, earth and sauvage hints. There is excellent richness, volume and mid-palate concentration to the medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by equally ripe tannins on the dusty, balanced and mouth coating finish. This is very Gevrey in personality but with only a trace of rusticity. Drink 2019+
Julia Harding, January 2014,
Dark and savoury and inviting. On the palate, moderate fruit weight leaves the tannins a touch prominent at the moment but it's vibrant and should come into a dark-fruited balance with a bit of time in bottle. Drink 2017-2022
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.
