TASTING NOTES


"Once again there is an abundance of floral influences to the very ripe yet fresh aromas of plum liqueur, cassis and the sauvage. There is copious dry extract that imparts a caressing and seductive texture to the broad-shouldered flavors that are at once powerful yet refined on the firmly structured and youthfully austere finish. This too is a 'buy and forget' wine."

ABOUT 

The domaine was created through the marriage of Bernard Dugat and Jocelyne Py in 1979, bringing together two sets of vineyards. Dugat-Py owns plots in several of the Gevrey-Chambertin grand cru vineyards, and also makes village-level and premier cru wines from plots in Vosne-Romanée, Pommard and Chassagne-Montrachet. The domaine's vines are on average 65 years old, with some vines in the grand cru plots reaching an age of 90.

WINEMAKING

Domaine Dugat-Py's wines are aged for up to 24 months in oak, in cellars which date back to the 11th Century. Given the size and prestige of the domaine, production is small – about 300 bottles are released annually. Domaine Dugat-Py is a wine producer in the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy. It is best known for its red wines made from Pinot Noir in grand cru vineyards such as Charmes-Chambertin and Chambertin. It also makes a range of premier cru wines, and a grand cru Chardonnay in the Corton-Charlemagne vineyard.
