The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru, the usual blend from La Perrière and Crapaillot, has a floral, elegant and effervescent bouquet bursting with Morello cherries, crushed strawberry and flinty scents. The palate is supple but with good body, quite harmonious with a fine bead of acidity, perhaps just pulling up a little short on the finish. Give this a couple of years just to fill out.
- Product Description
2017 Claude Dugat, Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru
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.
