2009 Grand Cru Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Initially this seems not that different in style to the Charmes. A darker register perhaps, a very rich chocolatey black fruit richness... And then here it comes, the rush of density of fruit that brings tannins that are much wilder, raw, much more like damsons in brandy. Again I marvel that vines of such simliar age (30 here, 31 in the Charmes) in neighbouring vineyards should make such clearly defined styles under the same hand. 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.
Four pieces produced this year with 20% de-stemmed. The powerful Mazoyeres has a seductive nose with a little more precision than the Charmes, with dark cherry, sandalwood and just a touch of cooked meat. Lovely delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied with dense, tightly coiled tannins that shroud the fruit at the moment. It takes time for those dark berries, cassis and plum fruits to emerge, but the finish is tightly coiled and very backwards/introspective. Rating: 92-94 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com
The 2009 Mazoyères-Chambertin is one of the most structured wines in this lineup. The concentration of fruit is beautifully balanced by the intense minerality of the wine. This really gains power and explosiveness on the palate-staining finish. The heavy presence of rocks in this site is really felt in the salinity. Finesse and power. It's all there in the Mayozères. Dugat used 100% whole clusters here. Rating: 95-97 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
Medium red-ruby color. Wild, expressive nose combines blackberry, game, spices, coffee bean and minerals. Silky, lush and full; distinctly richer in the middle than the Charmes (which actually contains one-third Mazoyeres), with a velour-like texture that coats the palate. Finishes with a rocky sensation of power and broad, buffered tannins. Exciting potential here. Rating: 93-96 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
100% new oak. Race and minerality - quite sinewy. Rangy. Very refreshing and with an attractive dry finish. 2017-2030 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com
This is quite different aromatically with a much more sauvage character to the otherwise brooding and extremely primary nose of dark berry fruit and earth-suffused nose. This is quite a masculine wine with its robust and big-bodied flavors that ooze dry extract that confers a textured mouth feel to the incredibly powerful and immensely long finish that is seriously structured. This is a magnificent example of the appellation but not one to buy unless you have ample amounts of patience. 2029+ Rating: 93-96 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com
