The appellation Nuits-Saint-Georges produces wines characterized by elegance and delicacy. The 2012 Cuvée Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Damodes from the House of Louis Latour takes its name from a particular vineyard. The presence of boulders coupled with fairies led the locals to name this land Les Dames Haute (the Grand Ladies), which later became Les Damodes. With well exposed vines and shallow limestone soil, the 2012 vintage of the Cuvée Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Damodes from Louis Latour is defined by its deep garnet robe. It next reveals aromas of black currant and mocha on the nose, common characteristics for the appellation. The mouth is fruity and collects touches of black cherry and liquorice. The tannins are supple and the wine, elegant.
