2011 1er Cru Lavaux Saint Jacques Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
|Vineyard||Lavaux Saint Jacques|
'I love this nose', says Bernard, smelling the empty brandy ballon he uses to mix the tasting sample from a range of barrels. It is very lightly expressive, and after the structured density of the Champeaux positively sings. The whole is probably just as powerful, but seems lifted and joyful with spice and fruit.

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.
(vinified with 67% stems). The densely fruited nose immediately communicates just how concentrated an effort this is as the plum, stone, spice and earthy aromas jump from the glass to reveal powerful and impressively scaled flavors that possess remarkable richness. This is robust and tautly muscular Lavaut with seemingly endless reserves of the characteristic minerality on the energetic and lightly menthol infused finish. Note that this will require plenty of cellar time to shed its very firm tannic shell but it should be well worth the wait. 2026+ Rating: 92-95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2013)
75% whole bunch, 100% new oak. Lively and aromatic and expressive. Then quite a bit of tannin on the end. Maybe a bit too much? Maybe a bit over extracted? Fruit is somewhat smothered. Drying finish. 2020-2030 Rating: 16.5+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2013)
