Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru ' Les Damodes' 2018, Domaine Machard de Gramont

NUIT570
A short 5km drive from Nuits-St-Georges, this unassuming hamlet of Prémeaux-Prissey, is the home of the characterful Alban Machard de Gramont. It has been our source of ‘Burgundy at sensible prices’ for many years. “Value for money” is not something that is often associated with the wines of the Côte d’Or; however, we have dealt with this family domaine for many years as it offers such great wines at sensible prices. As Alban often says, “I want people to be able to afford to drink my wines” How refreshing! The family owns small parcels in several different appellations and manages to seduce the individual characteristics from each one. They use a blend of American and French oak, developing ...

Domaine Machard de Gramont

This 20 hectare family estate is managed by Arnaud Machard de Gramont and his two sons Alban and Alexis. The cellars are located in Prissey, a neighbouring hamlet of Nuits-St-Georges. These cellars were built in the XIXth century. Their superb vaults give a "cathedral" effect to the winery. The 20 hectares of vineyards cover an impressive range of appellations spanning 50 kilometres, from Chenôve (south of Dijon) to Puligny-Montrachet (South of Beaune). This domaine is a great source of Burgundy at sensible prices. “Value for money” is not something that is often associated with the wines of the Core d’Or, however, we have dealt with this family domaine for many years for our commercial Burgundy needs – it offers more individuality than most negociants and consistently performs well. The family owns small parcels in several different appellations and manages to seduce the individual characteristics from each one. This estate now uses a blend of American and French oak, developing a unique style in the appellation of Nuits-St-Georges, Gevrey-Chambertin and Pommard.

Tasting Notes

Situated in the northern part of the appellation, on poor, limestone soils, just to the south of the premier cru appellations of Vosne-Romanée. One of the domaine’s flagship wines, this was our top scoring red from Machard. Great bouquet, open and inviting with hints of both red and black fruits, creamy and textured throughout. The palate was fresh, slightly smoky with raspberry, cherry and a note of myrtle – then the firm tannins enveloped the wine and these added more tension and energy. This is great winemaking – complex, long and quite simply a fabulous Burgundy!.
