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 ageing.

Tasting Notes
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Evocelles is showing spectacularly well from bottle, soaring from the glass with aromas of dark wild berries, grilled meats, woodsmoke, rich soil tones and espresso roast. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, built around fine, powdery tannins and a racy spine of acidity, concluding with a long and precise finish. More mineral and incisive than the broader, more muscular Coeur du Roy, this Evocelles is defined by its stony hillside terroir.
