2011 Grand Cru Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Very deep colour. Very well-defined fruit on nose. Complete. Cassis and even blackberry leaf bud, (fresh not green). Amazing tension for a Charmes. Intensity building. Gorgeous, easy to understand but no less classy for that. Super explosive finish. L&S (Jan 2013)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
(a blend of one-third Mazoyères and two-thirds Charmes proper – the fruit comes from a mix of mostly 20+ year, and a small percentage of extremely old, vines; 40% stems). This more elegant than the Lavaut with its ripe and attractively layered nose of black cherry, spice, warm earth and panoply of spice elements. There is superb richness, size and weight to the concentrated, velvety and seductively textured broad-shouldered flavors that conclude in a phenomenally persistent finish that is supported by very firm tannins. This is a powerful and robust Charmes. 2026+ Rating: 93-95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2013)
Contains one-third Mazoyères since 1996. 40% whole bunch. 100% new oak. Dark crimson. Lots of rich fruit overcomes the extraction. Lots here. Very dramatic but you’ll have to wait. Lots of energy. Gourmandise. 2020-2034 Rating: 18 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2013)
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.
