    January 31, 2017 - excellent showing. Decanted for 2 hours plus 2 hours of slow ox. darker fruits and berries along with very fine tannins and enough of a nervey backbone to give this an excellent balance.

    October 18, 2015 - Right black fruit with moderate spice. The wine is highlighted by its great density and concentration, that would have made me think this at least 1er Cru if served blind. Much more balanced than when last tried 2-3 years ago, this should drink nicely for a at least a decade. Excellent for its level. Kept getting better all night.

    January 2, 2014 - A beautiful wine. On the youthful side, but quite open now and very much a delight. Dark cherry color. Beautiful nose, if slightly clamped down, of stony cherry, light earthy funk, violets, and spice. In the mouth, elegant and pure, with great focus and intensity. Red fruited, with a bright cherry profile, and serious and delightfully intellectual complexity. Bright acidity and a tannic finish that bobbed in and out of clamping down and sailing along. This will be better with more time, but it's the sort of wine that shows how pleasing Burgundy can be in the early stages, much in the same way California Pinot can be. A-

    September 8, 2013 - a densely fruited, yet delineated nose of smoke- driven blackberry, cassis and black cherry are complicated by licorice, meat juices and leather. Rich and pliant on the palate with good texture to the medium + to full bodied flavors. Well-polished but showing good transparency. Lots of life left as there is plenty of tannin and extract.

    April 5, 2013 - Decanted for one hour. Bright darker ruby. Full nose of red berry. Pure red briary berry fruit on opening. Oak notes crept in. Vanilla finish. Oh well.

    (Dugat-Py Gevrey-Chambertin VV 'Couer de Roy') Dugat-Py

    Dear Friends,

    As one of the more dedicated vigneronnes in the trade, Bernard Dugat has turned in a perfomrance that should change the perception of his wines on the world stage. It is a triumphant success in a year that required the growing season to shine through, not the skin tannin.

    After so many hyper-extracted vintages that appear to peform far better at auction than at the dinner table, Bernard Dugat finally found magic in 2007 - a terroir year that favored transparency. The vintage style combined with Dugat-Py's typical depth and intensity resulted in tantilizing wines that are certainly among the finest Bernard has yet produced. While the riper years get all the headlines (1990, 1999, 2002, 2005), there is no doubt which vintage the winery places near the top: 2007.

    Always loaded with potential but seemingly stuck in the mud of Syrah in Pinot Noir clothing, many of Dugat-Py's wines have barely evolved (even the 1995-1999's) instead they remain in a timewarp with impatient collectors beginning to tire of the waitng game for secondary complexity to emerge. All of this has a chance to change with the 2007s.

    In 2007 Dugat-Py harnassed a Roumier meets Bernard Dugat style that will be swooned over by classicists and modernists alike. Even Truchot will find soemthign to admire in this set of 2007's and that's sayign a lot. As far as red Burgundy goes, your yuan could do far worse than an investment in 2007 Dugat-Py - esepcailly to drink. While these are no shrinking violets (far from it), they show the most deliberate difference of vineyard and soil expression since I began tasting this often ravishing set of wines with the 1990 vintage.

    As with previous vintages, the lure to order strictly on the highest score should be avoided - read the notes as they are a far better indicator of your potential enjoyment than 1-2 points. If you are investing to cellar and drink, the scores have little meaning (if your goal is to auction the wines, then the scores have more significance).

    Please try to balance your order requests - thank you in advance.

    This parcel has the finest provenance available:

    2007 Dugat-Py Bourgogne Rouge
    (expensive for a Bourgogne but it's akin to a Gevrey Villages)

    2007 Dugat-Py Bourgogne Rouge Halinard
    (more refinement than the regular Bourgogne, like a top tier Villages, but the regular may last longer - it's a toss-up as to which is the better wine)

    2007 Dugat-Py Vosne-Romanee Vieilles Vignes - $ 118.71
    (while not yet reviewed, this wine is always a favorite among our email list members - it shows a sophistication that is a cut above).
