2011 1er Cru Petite Chapelle Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Rich nose of ripe black fruit. Very suave and full again. Not as linear as the '1er Cru', more ample, a seemingly hotter corner? Rich with eau de vie and cassis, in a very compact silky weave. The same urgent fruit in the tannins on the finish. The fine, lightly sandy soil gives this 'feminine' style, says Bernard. 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 50+ year old vines vinified with 40% stems). The classic elegance of a fine Petite Chapelle is on display here with its pure, high-toned and wonderfully lacy nose of dark cherry, cassis and spiced plum. There is an abundance of minerality infusing the concentrated, phenolically mature and driving finish that is quite firm without being aggressive yet impeccably well balanced. Lovely juice and textbook Petite Chapelle. 2021+ Rating: 91-93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2013)
40-50% whole bunch, 100% new oak. Very dark crimson. A little severe and medium intensity of fruit. Chewy and firm. Middling in terms of fruit versus tannins. No really strong message. Needs time. 2022-2030 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2013)
