Tasting Notes

"The 2012 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from Claudes’ 0.25-hectare parcel of vines. It has a strong marine influence on the nose that is well defined and expressive, carrying and absorbing the new oak with ease. The palate is medium-bodied with a satin-like texture, very well judged acidity and the new oak beautifully interwoven into the intense sorbet-fresh fruit on the harmonious finish. This is one of the finest wines from this vineyard. " Neal Martin, Wine Advocate 94pts

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”.
