95-97 points




Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py is hailed as a luminous star in the Burgundy constellation, revered by connoisseurs as a bastion of authentic "vin de garde," wines that evolve and magnify in quality with the passage of time. Their commitment to the vineyard is nothing short of meticulous, as evidenced by their organic certification dating back to 2003. With approximately 7.5 hectares under their stewardship, primarily gracing the slopes of Gevrey-Chambertin, including the hallowed terroirs of four Grand Crus, as well as smaller holdings in Vosne-Romanée, Pommard, Chassagne-Montrachet, and Meursault, they have established an enological empire.

In the cellar, their winemaking philosophy is rooted in minimal intervention. Grapes are harvested judiciously, often at an earlier stage, stems intact, and judiciously aged in oak. The result is a portfolio of wines that resonate with the distinct character of their appellation and possess an innate ability to gracefully mature over time. Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py's wines are the epitome of Burgundian excellence, a timeless testament to the art of winemaking that continues to captivate enthusiasts and collectors alike.

Wine Advocate

The 2020 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is brilliant, wafting from the glass with aromas of cherries, peonies, sweet spices, rose petals and forest floor. Full-bodied, seamless and enveloping, it's elegant and sensual, with an ample core of vibrant, concentrated fruit and a long, expansive finish. Suave and harmonious, it's the finest Charmes from Dugat-Py that I've ever tasted from barrel.

A cool, pure and engagingly floral-suffused nose reflects additional notes of both red and dark currant, herbal tea, spice and earth. The lilting yet powerful middleweight flavors possess very fine mid-palate density as well as good minerality on the bitter cherry pit-inflected finale. This gorgeous effort also needs more depth, but the underlying material appears to be more than present for that to occur.
