2010 Vieilles Vignes La Levrière Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
After the Evocelles and the Vosne this is a different register, less floral and spicy, more earthy and stony. Nice freshness despite considerable bulk. Dense and pure, rich, and touch of liquorice, then a mass of raw red and black fruit, and an almost citrus edge to the finish. Quite chunky tannins - it's a Pommard after all. 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 Pommard La Levrière Vieilles Vignes shows the intensity and structure of this site. It comes across as a bit compact when tasted next to the domaine's other 2010s. The Levrière stands out for its energy, drive and focus. It will be interesting to see if this fills out over time. Dugat used 60% whole bunches here. Rating: 90-92 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 2013)
Good deep red-ruby. Reduced aromas of blackberry, licorice and smoke. Fat and sweet but reduced, with broad, rich dark fruit and licorice flavors nicely framed by harmonious acidity. Rather suave for young Pommard and not at all hard. Plenty of wood tannins, though. Rating: 88 - 90 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Jan 2012)
A notably floral and very fresh nose of high-toned and pure red berry fruit aromas that are nuanced by warm earth notes that continue onto the rich, silky and lightly mineral-infused flavors that are admirably precise and quite powerful for a villages level wine. This finishes with a dusty and firm finale that exhibits near perfect balance. 2020+ Rating: 89 - 91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2012)
