The Dugat family have been winegrowers in the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation since the beginning of the 17th century. Bernard Dugat and his son, Loîc are the 12th and 13th generation to exploit the unique knowledge of wine-making and working in the vines, which has been acquired over four centuries.
Dugat-Py Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru 2008
From a trio of Gevrey 1ers surrounding Mazis-Chambertin – Corbeaux, Fontenys and La Perrière, the latter of which replaces the Petite Chapelle that was in the ’99; vinified with 70% stems. A very densely fruited nose clearly speaks of the sauvage with warm earth, crushed herbs and cool red pinot, plum and black cherry fruit aromas that precede the rich, intense and textured medium weight plus flavors that possess excellent phenolic ripeness and an explosively long finish. This is terrific but note that patience will be required. 91-93 Outstanding. Drink from 2020+. Tasted Jan 2010
