Following the Petite Chapelle this is on a totally different spectrum. A wilder nose jumps out of the glass. Dark fruit and toast. Again more brood here, reminiscent of the Corbeaux. Darker with an exciting ‘sauvage’ feel; jagged rock and mineral. Black berries and some damson notes are more compacted by mineral push and some earth, hawthorn and leafy elements. A mineral power which is epic, but will need time to mellow. Really impressive stuff. Drinking range: 2023 - 2032L&S(Nov 2018)

(from a .33 ha of 50+ year old vines that abut Cazetiers; 60% stems). Reduction knocks down the nose but there is fine freshness and richness to the suave and seductively textured flavors that are generously proportioned while displaying both good tension and balance on the impressively persistent finish where a hint of wood appears. This mineral-driven beauty is firm but balanced and should amply repay extended cellaring, indeed it will need at least 6 to 8 years first and reward up to 15 or so.

The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Champeaux is one of the more reserved wines in the cellar, unfurling in the glass with notes of grilled meats, cherries, dark berries and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with the density and fine-grained structure that is so typical of this premier cru, underpinned by succulent acids and concluding with a long, youthfully firm finish. This will be a prospect for sustained bottle age. Rating: 92-94 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Jan 2019)
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Champeaux 1er Cru matures in 80% new oak and is made with around 60% whole bunch fruit. It has one of the most floral bouquets from Dugat-Py, one that is almost Vosne-like in style - very intense and lethally seductive! The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, grippy tannin, good acidity and perhaps more freshness and tension on the finish than the domaine’s other Premier Crus. Good potential but as always it needs time. Drinking range: 2025 - 2045 Rating: 91-93 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Jan 2019)
Still a touch smokily reduced but it’s easy to see the fruit on the palate. Dark, savoury from the reduction but has dark fruit underneath. Very savoury at the moment. Firm, almost chalky, texture. Honest and chewy and packed with fruit. Embryonic. Drinking range: 2025 - 2035 Rating: 17 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com(Dec 2018)
Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
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.

Wines bought en primeur are scheduled to arrive in the UK over the course of the next eighteen months. If you do not wish to take home delivery, you may wish to consider where you would like the wines shipped on arrival in the UK. Lea & Sandeman offers duty paid and in bond storage through a dedicated storage company called Elephant Storage. For more details on the terms and fees associated with storage please go to our Storage Homepage or contact our primeurs team for more information.

BURGUNDY EN PRIMEUR FAQ
OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.
PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.
DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering. We do not anticipate any problems but please be aware that delays to delivery may occur should Britain's possible departure from the European Union result in additional border customs checks or other regulatory requirements. Any additional or unforeseen duties, tariffs, charges or other financial liabilities relating to 'Brexit' must be due to the customer and will be added to orders as required.
DELIVERY - FEES: In bond delivery to an Elephant Storage account (for more information see 'Storage Options' opposite) is free of charge. Transfer of wines to any third party bond (i.e. not Elephant Storage) will incur an administration charge of £16.50 + VAT for all orders under £1,000. If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment. Once the relevant duty & VAT has been settled, we will ship the wines to your nominated address as per our normal duty paid Delivery Terms.
PAYMENT: All orders will be invoiced for immediate payment by cheque, cash, debit card or cleared funds to our account. We regret that we cannot accept credit cards for primeur orders. We reserve the right to apply a dunning charge of 2% per month on invoices unpaid after 30 days.
