Les Damodes is beautifully positioned neighboring the Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru of Malconsorts. Depending on your exposure to Nuits-St-Georges in cooler vintages and certain sites the appellation can come across very austere, grippy and often over tannic. However, the northern part of the appellation and its close proximity to Vosne-Romanée can produce fleshier, riper and dynamic expression of Pinot on a par with some of Vosne’s top sites. Les Damodes from Verdet offers tremendous value for the price and remains a real under-the-radar recommendation because of its proximity to some of the Côte d’Or’s greatest sites at a tenth of the price. As with Boudots, only four barrels produced. Next lowest pricing in the US is $180 on the 2017.
