2009 1er Cru Champeaux Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Getting into the coteau with this. A touch of sucrosity here, and real class too. Dancing , immediate pleasure, but also so clearly so much more to come. Real density and minerality combined to give a wine that really knows its place - and that's on the top table, thank you. Very long. L&S (May 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
100% new oak. Very dark. Very savoury with yeast-extract notes. Relatively filigree and with quite fresh acidity. Racy and filigree almost in this context. 2016-2028 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com
This is the freshest and most expressive wine to this point with its densely fruited and highly complex nose of plum, cassis, spice and dried violets that is followed by intensely mineral-driven middle weight flavors that are elegantly delineated, all wrapped in a palate staining and driving finish that is underpinned by ripe tannins and simply incredible persistence. 2024+ Rating: 92-95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com
Once again the nose takes some coaxing from the glass but it is worth the wait: lovely pure raspberry and strawberry mixed with touch of vanilla pod. Great definition and expression, but perhaps more feminine than Bernard’s other 2009s. The palate is very pure, lovely fruit expression here with dark cherry, raspberry, orange blossom and a touch of dried honey Good precision on the finish. Excellent.

The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux is one of the richest, darkest wines in this lineup. The Champeaux is a decidedly opulent wine that emphasizes sheer extract of fruit over aromatic complexity. There is plenty of underlying tannic material, but the tannins are totally buried by the sheer depth of the fruit. Rating: 93-96 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
