2011 1er Cru Champeaux Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Still on the cassis of Gevrey, but this has a less rounded and more severe structure. Powerful tannins build almost uncomfortably, but take the fruit and energy along for the ride. L&S (Jan 2013)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
(from a .33 ha of 50+ year old vines that abut Cazetiers; 60% stems). A ripe but more restrained nose of stone, plum and dark berry fruit liqueur scents introduces extract-rich and palate coating medium-bodied flavors that also display an intense minerality. There is a velvety mouth feel to the serious, linear and explosively long finish that displays a trace of the hallmark austerity in a young Champeaux. Terrific potential. 2023+ Rating: 92-94 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2013)
75% whole bunch, 100% new oak. Heady and rich and rather sumptuous on the nose. Very lively and fine. Transparent and concentrated but with the fruit shining through. Dry finish and very energetic. 2020-2032 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2013)
Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
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.
