87 Points Robert Parker
Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Les Damodes from Jean Chauvenet has a very respectable bouquet with brambly red berry fruit, briary and just a touch of dried violet petals emerging from the glass in somewhat stately fashion. The palate is tart on the entry with pointed red cherry and strawberry fruit, although it does not "flow" like its peers and feels a little stunted on the finish. Not bad, though the domaine producer better wines in this vintage.
