2009 1er Cru Petite Chapelle Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Petite Chapelle is another wine that seems to speak more of the house style than the year. Silky, polished tannins frame layers of fruit on the sensual, explosive finish. The Petite Chapelle impresses for its pure breed. It is just as fabulous from bottle as it was from barrel. Rating: 90-94 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 2013)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
Domaine Dugat-Py, along with only DRC, Roumier, Rousseau and Leroy, is rated in the top Three Star category by the 'Classement' published by the Revue du Vin de France. These are the essence of robust Burgundy, wines of huge scale and concentration. Patience is required, so lay down a few grand bottles for your dotage.
100% new oak. 30% to 40% whole grapes. Hedonistic and rich on the nose. Juicy, firm and without a trace of oak. Sinewy. Luscious, quite forward. Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Feb 2011)
Tasted out of barrel at the Domaine. This has a more floral bouquet than the 1er Cru with dark cherries, violet, limestone and a touch of lemon peel. Very fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with well-integrated oak, sappy red-berried fruit, orange peel, raspberry coulis and a touch of dark plum. Very focused and linear with a persistent finish. Very fine. Rating: 91-93 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com (Feb 2011)
Dark red. Explosive, very ripe aromas of black raspberry, game, spices, licorice, coffee and mocha. Sweet and fat with fruit; a bit exotic but with serious depth of dark fruit, spice and licorice flavors. There's nothing brutal about this fleshy, harmonious wine. Dugat vinified this wine with a lower percentage of whole clusters than his other 2009 premier crus. Very round for a wine at this address, with the ripe tannins nicely enrobed by mid-palate stuffing. Rating: 92 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Feb 2011)
