Les Damodes: This 8.55-hectare Premier Cru climat lies in the northern part of the commune of Nuits-St-Georges, uphill and to the north of the village and along the border with Vosne-Romanée. Facing east and lying at 280-340 meters, this vineyard has a slope of 20% and runs along the top of Premiers Crus Aux Cras, Le Richemone and Aux Murgers. The topsoil is a limestone-rich mixture of clay and silt. The name derives from a triad of Druid goddesses who were believed to control harvests. One excellent source of Les Damodes is Domaine de la Vougeraie.
