2017 1er Cru Perrières Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py


(from a .08 ha parcel; vinified with 50% whole cluster). Once again the aromatic profile is cool and restrained with its mix of essence of red currant, plum and plenty of earth and floral influences. The intense, delineated and muscular medium weight flavors exhibit good minerality on the linear, saline, dusty and firm finale. Again, this doesn’t’ possess its usual density but it’s nonetheless very well balanced and should age effortlessly. Drinking range: 2032 - Rating: 90-93 Allen Meadows, 2019)

From a parcel of 65-year-old vines and vinified with 50% whole cluster, the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru La Perrière unfurls in the glass with aromas of licorice, sweet cherries, cassis and charcoal. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with lots of fine, chalky structure lurking behind a generous core of succulent fruit. This is another wine built for the long haul. Rating: 91 - 93+ William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Jan 2019)

The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin La Perrières 1er Cru comes from a parcel of 70-year old vines and there is just one new 350-litre barrel to go around this year. It has an intense bouquet with brambly red fruit, hints of leather and hickory, Moroccan spice emerging with continued aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, a fine bead of acidity, grippy in the mouth with a fig and blackberry finish that leaves a light pepperiness on the aftertaste.

Initial impression is sweet vanilla and spice from the oak. Really spicy fruit too. The oak is covering the fruit at the moment but it’s there at the core and opens up to a gently floral character. Chewy, firm tannins but not angular. Big and rich. Freshness on the finish. Drinking range: 2025 - 2037 Rating: 16.5++ Julia Harding MW, 2018)

There's just one 350-litre barrel of this wine for the world, sourced from a premier cru that sits just below Mazis-Bas on fine sand and limestone soils. Old-vine concentration, deep colour and textured, fine-grained tannins are framed by skilfully integrated wood and aromatic spices. Superb winemaking.

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.

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.

While helpful, we do not require a firm commitment on delivery destination to process your primeur order at this stage. Our team will be in contact with you when your wines arrive in the UK to confirm the necessary delivery details.


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.
