More Vintages and Sizes of Bernard Dugat-Py - Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur de Roy (Vieilles Vignes):
Author: Allen Meadows
A classic if notably ripe Gevrey nose combines pungent earth and underbrush aromas with cool and pure red berry fruit that is nuanced by a touch of cassis. The restrained, textured and concentrated middle weight flavors exude an intense minerality, all wrapped in a hugely complex and persistent finish. This is one of the finest villages wines of the 2009 vintage but note that it is built to go at least 12 to 15+ years.

(Dugat's largest village cuvee): Good full red. Aromas of currant, plum and mocha reminded me a bit of Bordeaux. Fat and sweet, with superripe, almost decadent flavors of cherry, black raspberry, spices and leather. The big tannins reach the front teeth on the long finish, which leaves behind notes of leather and damp earth. Not a particularly refined style but full-blown and imposing for village wine.

The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roi impresses for its superb delineation and balance. Fresh, perfumed aromatics complement the radiant fruit in this expressive, silky Burgundy. Dark red cherries, spices and licorice wrap around the insistent finish.
