2010 1er Cru Champeaux Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Next to Cazetiers, in the rock in the middle of the slope. Really fresh, a real tension of minerals. Black fruit, supple rock-juice style cassis, creamy-textured yet translucent, jewel-like. Lots going on but all compact and together a real wine of the bedrock. L&S (Dec 2011)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux is a more structured, tannic wine than the Petite Chappelle. The fruit tends towards the redder end of the spectrum, but ultimately the Champeaux is more about minerality and sheer length. This is a 2010 with firm, imposing tannins that is going to require quite a bit of cellaring. Rating: 92-94 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 2013)
Dark red. Restrained but pure aromas of blackberry, currant, minerals and spices, complicated by a whiff of fresh blood. Densely packed and layered, with lovely finesse and minerality for this cuvee. Finishes spicy, sweet and long, with considerable dusty tannins and a whiff of black licorice. This is balanced to offer early appeal but has the juicy concentration and backbone to age well. Rating: 92 - 94 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Jan 2012)
This is almost like a hypothetical combination of the Gevrey “1er” and the Petite Chapelle with a ripe and admirably pure nose of cassis, spiced plum, wet stone and pungent earth aromas. There is genuinely brilliant complexity to the exceptionally rich and equally stony broad-shouldered flavors that possess perhaps a bit more refinement than usual on the strikingly persistent finish. This is a stunner of a Champeaux in a vintage that produced any number of them. 2025+ Rating: 92 - 95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2012)
70% whole bunch. 100% new oak. Very dark crimson. Very fine and firm and scented. Extremely vigorous and fresh. Very lively black fruits. Lovely pure stuff. Minerals and very gouleyant. Great balance and persistence. Really exciting. Very long and fine. 2016-2026 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2012)
