History

Dame-Jame comes from the Persian ciry of Damghan located on the silk road in the fertile crescent of Mesopotami, the cradle of wine. Specialised in the production of glass and terra cotta carboy for oil and wine transport, Damghan floods the merchant fleet of its budging demijohn of low quantity from antiquity to the end of the middle ages. Dame-Jane Rose tells the generosity of its Pinots, clinging on the southern chalk, vinified in Argonne oak barrels and aged in terra cotta jar for AOC red wine.
