Remoriquet Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Damodes, 2021
Type: Red Wine
Grape(s): Pinot Noir
Wine Region: Burgundy, France
Tasting Notes: Les Damodes is located at the Vosne-Romanee end of Nuits-Saint-George and follows the classic style of elegant, well structured Pinot Noir. Powerful and strongly-built, this is the wine that confers on the Côte de Nuits its noble reputation of a sturdy character, showing refinement and great class.
The Winemaker: Gilles Remoriquet is not a winemaker who rests on his laurels. He is forever looking for ways to improve his wines. Most recently he has been to the Jura to see a specialist about selecting the right blend of manure and has bought a second sorting table which eliminates under-ripe berries by flotation! Remoriquet is one of the top estates in Nuits but the prices have yet to catch up. At the top of the range the Vosne-Romannée 1er Cru au Dessous des Malconsorts is situated next to La Tâche and tastes sublime!
Suggested food and wine pairing: Coq Au Vin.
