2010 Domaine Dugat-Py Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Cœur de Roy’ Vieilles Vignes

$280.00

Dugat-Py is a high-class Gevrey-Chambertin Domaine that has risen to prominence in the last 10 years. It was run for many years by Pierre Dugat and, astonishingly, only began estate bottling in 1989. It is now run by Pierre’s son Bernard, who is recognised as one of the shrewdest winemakers on the Côte.
The Domaine consists of 5 hectares of vineyards and includes holdings in several Premiers Crus sites and 3 Grands Crus.
The key to the success is in the vineyard with exceptionally meticulous control of the work, there being five people working full time on 10 hectares.
The vines are for the most part extremely old, averaging 65 years old across the domaine. Replanting is done with selections from their own vine stock, never with clones.
The domaine has been fully organic since 2003. The wines are vinified with as little intervention as possible and are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The wines are very approachable in youth but show at their best with 5-8 years of bottle ageing.

Description

90 Points Allen Meadows
A ripe and attractively perfumed nose features notes of black cherry, cassis and plum that are given added lift from the copious floral nuances. There is simply incredible concentration to the round and suave medium weight plus flavors that possess a velvety mouth feel on the powerful, precise and superbly focused and persistent finish. This explosive effort delivers knockout quality for its level.

93 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roi is racy, deep and totally sensual. Clean veins of minerality support a core of expressive blue and black fruit. The 2010 is both deep and long. All the elements are beautifully balanced in this impeccable, mineral driven wine. Cassis, blueberries, sweet flower and mint inform the energetic, palate staining finish. Dugat used 75% whole clusters, which gives the wine an attractive aromatic lift throughout. These vines are between 50-100 years old. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.
