Description

100% Chardonnay. Dugat-Py is a high class Gevrey-Chambertin domaine that has risen to prominence in the last ten 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 wines are concentrated, yet extremely stylish and well balanced. Reds and whites are very approachable in youth, but show at their best with 5-8 years of bottle ageing.

Tasting Notes
The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot 1er Cru comes from a mere 0.33 hectares of 80-year-old vines located just below the Abbaye de Morgeot lieu-dit. It has a fresh, vibrant bouquet of apricot, orange pith and light crushed stone aromas – probably my pick of the aromatics among the four white 2018s tasted from Dugat-Py. The palate is very well balanced with a slightly creamy opening, lovely apricot and clementine notes, a fine line of acidity and an energetic finish. This is a quite superb Chassagne from the Gevrey producer.
