2010 1er Cru Petite Chapelle Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
'Un vin gourmand'. Rich, hedonistic warm ripeness, a touch of sweetness. Harmonious, round, floral, red and black fruit, all fine and subtle. All very delicate and fine-grained despite obvious power. 'The sweetest and most feminine cru of Gevrey, almost a Chambolle', says Bernard. 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 Petite Chappelle emerges from the glass with freshly cut flowers, spices, mint and licorice. This is a totally harmonious, gracious wine from Bernard Dugat. The richness and weight of the fruit are very nicely balanced by the cooler, more vibrant qualities of the year. This is all class and elegance. Small red berries, flowers and licorice reappear on the finish. The Petite Chapelle was vinified with 50% whole clusters and aged in 100% new oak. Rating: 93-95 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 2013)
Red with ruby highlights. Blackberry on the nose, lifted by strong violet and lavender notes. Juicy, youthfully imploded black fruit and floral flavors are framed and supported by a strong acid spine and substantial oak tannins. As tight as this is, it already displays lovely perfumed length. Rating: 91 - 93 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Jan 2012)
(from 50+ year old vines vinified with 50% stems). Here the nose is more elegant and airier with an almost Chambolle-like aromatic profile. The floral and liqueur of red raspberry fruit notes are refined and pure. There is beautiful precision and intensity to the medium-bodied flavors that brim with an almost pungent minerality on the complex, long and balanced finish. Though this is lacy and indeed delicate, the Gevrey roots express themselves via the sleek but taut muscularity that arrives right on the finish. Impressive juice with plenty of upside potential. 2022+ Rating: 92 - 94 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2012)
40% whole bunch. 100% new oak. Gentle but direct perfume of ripe red fruits and something floral. Pure. Really fine tannins. Lipsmacking and impressive. 2015-2024 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2012)
