The 2017 Bourgogne Rouge has quite a generous raspberry preserve and strawberry scented bouquet. The palate has light dark plummy fruit, a crisp line of acidity with just a dab of spice towards the finish. Enjoy over the next three or four years.
- Product Description
2017 Claude Dugat, Bourgogne Rouge
Domaine Claude Dugat, established in 1955, is widely considered one of the top producers in Gevrey-Chambertin. It is a small family-run domaine, with Claude and Marie-Thérèse’s children - son Bertrand and daughters Laetitia and Jeanne - taking over the running of the six hectare estate. The domaine practices sustainable viticulture, never using fertilisers or herbicides. The aim is to have a light touch in the vineyard and to harvest the grapes when they are just ripe. Ripeness (and the harvest date) is determined solely by taste rather than by lab analysis, with the wines always having a signature freshness because they never pick late. The concentration and intensity of the wines is derived primarily from old vines and low yields.
