More about this Producer
Damien’s forebears established the Domaine in 1920 when the Livera’s first acquired vines in Gevrey, along with their cousins, the Ponsot family, from Morey St Denis. His first initiative was the upgrading and renovating the vineyards and winery. As a result, a state of the art facility was operational from 2008, and quality has taken a quantum leap forward with some stunning wines now being made. Not surprisingly, Damien is close to Arnaud Mortet, who has been very helpful in providing advice (amongst others in the appellation). Damien takes the view that the raw material – the grapes – are different every year in Burgundy, and one should fine tune the details Extraction is adapted to the vintage and new wood treatment varies from 20% for the “Fixin” and Cote de Nuits-Villages through 30/40% on Villages and 100 % for the Grand Cru.
Nestling high up and facing due south in a mini reflecting bowl, the vines thrive with the perfect mix of sunshine and shade, allowing Damien to create these wines that ring true to the region. The bouquets are ripe with licorice and black fruit with stylish texture; seamless and compact; certainly 1er cru in quality.
Damien Livera, a shy 24 year old at the time, took over the family Estate in 2005.
