2011 Grand Cru Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
While the soil in Charmes is sandy and light, Mazoyères is pebbly and rocky. Nose is dramatically different. Deep round depth of slightly liquorice fruit. And yet there's a freshness too. Palate is broad, black and mouthcoating. Very fine grain, and all enveloped in richness. Tannins build to an uncomfortable level. Concentrated, muscly, almost brutal, and yet so polished in the mid-palate. 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 .25 ha parcel and vinified with 90% stems; produced only since 2004). This is distinctly earthier and presently less aromatically expressive than the Charmes with its slightly sauvage nose of plum, cassis and ample floral character. The intense, muscular and brooding flavors that decidedly less evolved as well with an imposing size and weight that is amplified though the rustic and massively long finish. This can’t match the Charmes for refinement though this is a bit more complex and even a touch longer though the Charmes may match it in time. 2028+ Rating: 93-95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2013)
75% whole bunch. 100% new oak. On the Morey side. Very rich on the nose. Ripe blackberries. Then rather fine tannins. Oddly, the most approachable of his grands crus but still pretty rigid and tough on the end. 2018-2032 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2013)
