2011 Vieilles Vignes La Levrière Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Seems quite oaky, but it's really just that the fruit is a little on the back foot. In need of a racking? No doubting the volume; it's as rich and full as it could be. Rich and tense and relaxed and velvety all the the same time. L&S (Jan 2013)

(vinified with ~50% of the stems). Not surprisingly the nose is completely different compared to that of the Vosne as the floral elements are less pronounced with more earth character to the red currant aromas. There is excellent richness and phenolic maturity to the suave and very round medium-bodied flavors that possess superb concentration, balance and even better depth. A seriously impressive effort. 2019+ Rating: 89-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2013)
60% whole bunch, 50% new oak. First grapes to be picked each year. Very rich and broad. Massively fruity and flattering. Pretty chewy on the end. Very solid, ambitious and classic old style. Lots of tannin on the end. 2020-2030 Rating: 16.5 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.
