Description

The wines of Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py are considered by Burgundy aficionados to be one of the regions stars and an estate that produces true vin de garde.

In the 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roy, a remarkable transformation unfolds, with this wine showcasing a newfound elegance and structural refinement compared to just a few years ago. It beckons with enticing aromas of untamed berries and plums, seamlessly intertwined with notes of dark chocolate, warm spices, black truffles, and smoldering embers. This wine, medium to full-bodied, presents itself as a rich and velvety masterpiece, underpinned by remarkable concentration—a testament to the old, low-yielding Pinot Fin vines in prestigious locations.

The 2020 vintage marks another brilliant achievement for a domaine that has been on an impressive streak in contemporary Burgundy, boasting vibrant flavors, exquisitely refined tannins, significant concentration, and balanced alcohol levels. These youthful wines artfully blend the allure of 2019 with the gravitas of 2018, resonating with an extra surge of vitality that sets them apart. It is evident that the domaine's innovative viticultural practices, featuring high, unshaded canopies and biodynamic methods, along with deep-rooted soil cultivation, enabled the vines to thrive in the face of the challenges posed by the heat and drought of 2020, differentiating them from their peers.

Deep raspberry fruit, with a floral edge, the balance between the rewarding density and fresh acidity ensures that the wine is not heavy at all. Marvellous. Dugat-Py has 3ha of village Gevrey and most of the vines are very old - the average age is 50 years of age, although the oldest is 110. There is a hectare of 80-year-old vines in Les Epointeurs, a half-hectare in Combes de Dessus and a half-hectare in Les Marchais amongst others.

A super-fresh and distinctly earthy aromas are comprised by notes of cassis and dark berry fruit liqueur. The dense, serious and mouth coating flavors possess a beguiling texture thanks to the abundance of dry extract that also serves to buffer the firm tannic spine shaping the strikingly long finish. This is flat out terrific and it's rare to see villages-level Gevrey at this level. *Outstanding, Top Value!

The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roy is a rich, muscular wine, but it's much more elegant and structurally refined than was the case only a few years ago. Offering up aromas of wild berries and plums mingled with dark chocolate, warm spices, black truffles and burning embers, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and velvety, with striking concentration—old, low-yielding Pinot Fin in top lieux-dits ensures that—and a seamless, complete profile. The 2020 is another brilliant vintage for a domaine that has been on one of the hottest hot streaks in contemporary Burgundy in recent years. Vibrant flavors, beautifully refined tannins, striking concentration and moderate alcohols are the order of the day, and these young wines seem to unite the charm of 2019 and the seriousness of 2018 (at least at this address, which produced some of the wines of the vintage) with supplemental reserves of energy that mark them out as very special indeed. Clearly, the domaine's innovative viticulture, emphasizing high, unhedged canopies and biodynamic preparations, with soils cultivated to encourage deep rooting, meant the vines were better equipped to resist the heat and drought in 2020 than many of their neighbors.
