Description

100% Pinot Noir. 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 recognized 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 aging. Vines 50 to 105+ years old, the Coeur de Roy always impresses with its sheer density of fruit.

Tasting Notes
Unfurling in the glass with a deep bouquet of peonies, wild berries, cherries and loamy soil, the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roy is full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, endowed with real texture and mid-palate amplitude. Muscular and concentrated, it's beautifully complete, with lively acids and refined if abundant tannins. From barrel, I suggested that readers might think of this particular rendition of Dugat-Py's emblematic communal Gevrey as a baby Charmes-Chambertin, and that contention holds up in bottle.
