When at a blind tasting of English experts in 2007 of the wines of all the best estates of Burgundy Damoy’s Clos de Beze was ranked equal best wine with Rousseau’s Clos de Beze, it not only confirmed the ranking of the vineyard it took the Domaine Damoy to the super-star status from which it has not looked back. Since the middle of the 1930’s it had owned vineyards in the Grand Crus of Chapelle-Chambertin as well as Clos de Beze where with 5.36 hectares of vines principally planted in the 1920’s they are the largest owner. The Domaine had leased out much of its prime vineyard holding and fallen in reputation until the present Pierre took over in 1992. He instituted a mammoth rework of the estate vineyards, reclaiming them as the rental agreements expired and introducing a regime a biodynamic viticulture together with a green harvest to reduce the already low cropping levels further. In the cellar he introduced modern practices and increased the proportion of new oak used.
