Denser again, very dark fruit, but it's tensile too - a driving, saline palate. 'les brutal than it used to be', remarks Loïc, and it has lovely length. Drinking range: 2033 - 2050L&S (Oct 2020)

A much different, and much earthier and more sauvage-inflected nose, grudgingly reveals deeply pitched and ripe aromas of dark berries, plum liqueur and a whiff of oak. Here too there is a relatively fine mouthfeel to the gorgeously textured medium-bodied flavors that exude ample minerality on the firm, serious and youthfully austere finale.

A fine follow-up to the lovely 2018 rendition, Dugat-Py's 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Champeaux opens in the glass with aromas of raspberries and cherries, complemented by hints of violets, smoked meats, rich soil tones and a pretty top note of rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with real texture and mid-palate amplitude, it's lively and penetrating, with a long, fragrant finish. As I've written before, these vines have been in the family for a long time, and the Champeaux was often purchased by Maison Leroy in the days before the Dugat family began domaine bottling. Rating: 92 - 94+ William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Champeaux 1er Cru saw 50% whole bunch with two-thirds new oak. It has a subtle, cerebral bouquet featuring gorgeous black fruit mixed with sea spray, cockle sheds and graphite aromas; this is very classy. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very intense and energetic, leading to a sorbet-fresh, blood-orange-infused finish that has a lot of potential. Cellar this Champeaux for five or six years if you can, because it has ambition. Drinking range: 2025 - 2050 Rating: 93-95 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Dec 2020)
Very dense and concentrated on the nose. Smooth tannin management and sumptuous texture. Really lovely and rich yet lively. Drinking range: 2026 - 2042 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Dec 2020)
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.

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.
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.
