Domaine Pierre Damoy was founded in 1922. It is located in the heart of Burgundy, in Gevrey-Chambertin. The winemaking tradition has been handed down from father to son. Pierre Damoy is nicknamed Monsieur Chambertin because of the location of his plots. He farms parcels of both Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin. He also vinifies Grand Cru wines such as Clos de Bèze. Passionate and demanding, he bottles only the very best wines. Concentrated on a small surface area of just ten hectares, this estate is rich in renowned parcels: nearly 8 hectares are classified as Grand Cru.
Geographical location of Domaine Pierre Damoy
Gevrey-Chambertin, in Burgundy, is a highly historic place when it comes to wine. It was here that the first Gallo-Roman vines were discovered. Clos-de-Bèze is one of the oldest clos viticoles in France. This terroir seems to have always lent itself to the production of white and red Burgundy wines. Domaine Pierre Damoy is part of this long tradition. The estate has preserved a very old vineyard in Chapelle-Chambertin. The soil is predominantly clay or clay-limestone.
