    ($150) Good red-ruby. The wonderfully sweet but fresh nose reminded me of a top Pomerol: black plum, minerals, chocolate and caramel. Compellingly sweet and fat with fruit; flavors of black raspberry and chocolate saturate every square millimeter of the palate. This impressively concentrated village wine has extraordinary weight and sweetness without coming off as cooked or heavy. A great example of the vintage.

    Dark and deep, offering black cherry, black currant and oak spice notes. The tannins are on the dry side, with a green element on the finish. 100 cases imported.

    Ripe but fresh aromas of cassis and violets complement rich, supple and gorgeously intense flavors that just ooze extract with ample Gevrey character and stunning length that displays a subtle touch of wood. This is quite velvety but there is plenty of structure buried beneath the considerable sap. Most impressive at this level.

    The 2003 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur de Roy Tres Vieilles Vignes (50-95-years old) sports a nose of deeply ripe blackberries. An intense medium to full-bodied effort, its broad personality slathers the palate with black cherries as well as fine tannin. This expressive, persistent effort should be drunk over the next 7-8 years.

    This villages level Gevrey is made from vines ranging in age from over 50 years to almost a century. About one third of the blend is produced from the oldest vines (over 90 years) at a lieux-dit named Combe Dessous and located beneath the premier cru vineyard Combes aux Moines. The remaining two thirds from 50+ year-old vines comes from a vineyard that abuts Bernard Dugat and Jocelyne Py's home at the top of Gevrey. Yields are kept extremely low. Winemaking is kept as pure and as non?interventionist as possible. Given their hands off philosophy, its not surprising that they bottle their wine without filtration. The 2003 is extremely concentrated, tannic, and masculine. While the tannins are strong they are smooth and reasonably plush. Regardless cellaring this wine for the time it needs to develop has some additional risk due to the persistence of the tannin. Deeply hued with thin lightly colored legs. Almost painfully intense scents of minerals, earth, plum, and smoke. Plenty of acid frames the wine. Very fine length.

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.

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
