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)

(80-year-old vines): Good deep red. High-toned but restrained nose hints at black cherry. Rich but tight and dry, finishing with solid tannins. A rather awkward showing today. Rating: 86-89 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com (Dec 2014)
Bernard Dugat's 2011 Pommard La Levriere Vieilles Vignes stands out for its length and energy. There is plenty of persistence, but the tannins are a bit astringent, which is not unusual in the Côte de Beaune, where many wines are lacking in mid-palate depth, as is the case here. The 2011 was done with 60% whole clusters and aged in 60% new oak. Drinking range: 2016 - 2026 Rating: 87-89 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (May 2014)
(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)
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.
