Domaine CLAUDE DUGAT Gevrey-Chambertin 2013

Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: "The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has a clean and pure, rather “airy” bouquet, with fresh strawberry, citrus fruit and a slight stoniness. The palate is fresh and vibrant with tart red fruit, a citric line of acidity that is just slightly compromised by the dominant new wood at the moment. This is the one cru that I would have been more prudent about the use of oak, although it should meld together with time." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

About the winery:
Domaine Claude Dugat, founded in 1955, is widely considered one of the best producers in Gevrey-Chambertin. The six hectares of vineyard, cultivated without chemical fertilizers or weedkillers, deliver only a small quantity of bottles: the demand is so high that there is no more wine to sell at the property. Claude Dugat wines have the finesse, depth and persistence of great Pinot Noirs.
