  • Goedhuis, December 2019

    One of the village’s most northerly appellations, on the high slopes adjoining Vosne Romanée. It is however typically representative of Nuits. This is firmly structured, with appealing autumnal fruits. The taut tannic character provides weight, which is softened on the finish by attractive spiced oak flavours.

  • Burghound, January 2020, Score: 89-92

    This too is quite firmly reduced and nothing escapes the funk today. More interesting are the energetic medium-bodied flavors that are caressing yet focused with firm supporting tannins that are slightly grippy and chewy yet not so much that they cut the finish short though or render the finish unduly rustic.

  • Wine Advocate, January 2020, Score: 91-93+

    The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Damodes reveals lovely aromas of wild berries, peonies and sweet forest floor, framed by a discrete application of new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied and supple but precise, with fine tannins and a succulent core of crunchy berry fruit. This cool, high-altitude and northeast-exposed site has performed very well in this warm vintage.

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2020, Score: 93-95

    Slow to ripen, which was a blessing in 2018, but picked before the rain. Dense concentrated purple. The nose is discreet but fine, the palate an absolute explosion of really dense fruit with a fine crisp finish. Raspberry with intense ripe cherry alongside, just enough acidity. A real crunch at the finish.

  • WK, January 2021, Score: 92

    The 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Damodes has turned out nicely, opening in the glass with notes of smoky berry fruit, sweet soil tones and a deft application of new oak. Medium to full-bodied, lively and fine-boned, its pretty core of fruit girdled by bright acids and underpinned by fine, powdery tannins, this is a suave, vibrant Nuits that will offer a broad drinking window.

Nuits Saint Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
