Claude Dugat Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru
Price: $207.82 excl. GST
- Tasting Notes
This is more elegant still and slightly more complex if compositionally similar to the nose of the Gevrey villages. There is good delineation to the intense and chiseled mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that possess good drive on the ever-so-mildly austere, balanced and lingering finish. A lovely and understated wine that has the stuffing to age.

The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru comes from two lieux-dits: Les Craipillot and La Perriere, the latter with more limestone soils. The nose is very well defined with superb mineralite – a clear level up from the village cru and with time there is an alluring, feminine dried rose petal scent. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins – a feminine, beautifully focused with fine tension on the finish. Poised and balletic, but just 4 barrels this year.

A combination of elegance and concentration, this red exhibits black cherry, blackberry, violet, mineral and spice flavors on a firm, tensile structure. Balanced and pure, but needs time for all the components to come together. Finishes with a touch of black pepper.
