Pierre Damoy

"Pierre Damoy describes his approach as "durable viticulture", which is neutral for the soil."

Soil Specificity

The soils in Côte de Nuits result on the consequences of the uplift of the Alps and the collapse of the plain of the Saône. The vines are mainly planted on limestone slopes. At the summit sits the famous "stone of premeaux", giving Romanée-Conti, Richeboug, and La Tâche outstanding wines. The soils are formed of calcareous scree, limestone, and red silt with a large diversity of terroir contributing to the typicality of the Côte de Nuits wines.

History / Ethos

Pierre Damoy is the fifth generation of his family to work the vineyards of the Domaine. Since 1992, having taken over from his uncle Jacques, he has been allowing the vines to express themselves as much as possible, following what he calls 'durable viticulture'. He uses no herbicides or pesticides but believes biodynamic can add too much copper into the soil, which he prefers to remain as neutral as possible. The grapes are harvested late, and this is reflected in the character of the wines.
