(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.

About This Producer


Domaine Dugat-Py is a small family-operated winery in Gevrey-Chambertin that produces a dozen wines ranging from regional to grand cru status. In former days, the Dugat family sold their wines in bulk to local negociants, which currently limits their representation of older vintages. Today, Bernard and Jocelyne Dugat manage the property and have bottled estate fruit since 1989. The domaine's 7.26 hectares of vines are old and produce naturally low yields. There is very little intervention during the vinification process and the wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered. Dugat-Py ages its wine in a lofty vaulted cellar, originally built by monks, that dates back to 1075. The wines display a concentrated, lush, old-vine flavor that reflects the quality of such a high class estate.
