2013 Évocelles Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Creamed blackcurrants, rich and ripe and full on the palate. Completely shrugs off the oak. Mineral lift; great purity carrying the fruit all the way to the finish. Drinking range: 2023 - L&S (Nov 2014)
*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 .75 ha vineyard worked manually and by horse; vinified with 75% stems). There is enough reduction present to push the fruit to the background but what is discernible clearly seems ripe. The palate impression of the delineated middle weight flavors is more mineral-driven if less powerful with excellent underlying tension adding a lovely sense of vibrancy to the mouth coating, balanced, saline and wonderfully long finish. This too offers outstanding quality for its level and is well-worth your attention. 2023+ Rating: 89-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2015)
60% whole bunch. 67% new oak. 70-year-old vines. Lots of millerandé grapes, all very small. Very perfumed and headily seductive. Racy and minerally refreshing, Very pure and impressive. Relatively forward and a crackling good drink. Drinking range: 2019 - 2029 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2015)
(60% vendange entier; 18 hectoliters per hectare; 85% new oak): Good dark red. Rather wild aromas of blueberry, smoke and minerals, plus a flinty nuance. Sweeter and finer-grained than the Coeur de Roi, offering nicely ripe flavors of purple fruits. Finishes with subtle mounting length and chocolatey tannins. Dugat says the marne blanche in this hillside vineyard is good soil for white wine. Drinking range: 2021 - 2031 Rating: 90-92 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com (Jan 2015)
From Bernard’s 75-year-old vines, the 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin les Evocelles has a very expressive bouquet, with dark cherries and blackberry neatly carrying the new oak. The palate is sweet and concentrated on the entry with saturated tannins, mulberry and black plum forming the rounded, quite powerful finish. Fine, but a bit "stocky" at the moment. Drinking range: 2018 - 2030 Rating: 88-90 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com (Dec 2014)
