Tasting Notes

"Moving on to the trio of Claude Dugat’s Grand Crus, the 2011 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a quintessential “Charmes” bouquet with vivacious scents of dark cherry, blueberry and quince, suffused with an almost sorbet-like freshness. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly sinewy entry. It coalesces in the second half and displays very fine, supple tannins with plenty of juicy Pinot fruit just cloaked under the 100% new oak at the moment, although everything is balanced and in sync. I would afford this three or four years in bottle for it to fully integrate. Drink 2016-2025." Neal Martin, Wine Advocate 92pts

DOM. CLAUDE DUGAT
Claude Dugat is widely considered as one of the top producers in all of Burgundy. The small property consists of 6 hectares of very old vines – all in the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin. The vineyards are farmed mostly with organic practices producing very low yields of outstanding fruit. Claude Dugat favors subtle oak influence and a style of finesse and restraint rather than overpowering concentration – in other words, quintessential Burgundy. “I don’t like to say that I make my vines suffer,” Dugat remarks, “because I love them. I prefer to say that I make them work hard for me”.
