In stock now and online

2011 Dugat Claude Bourgogne Rouge...$59.99
"We are very pleased to represent Claude Dugat, who is widely considered one of the top producers in all of Burgundy. The property consists of 12 hectares and ranges from Bourgogne to Griottes-Chambertin where he owns .15 hectares.   All of the vineyards are farmed organically and only fertilized once every 4 years. This is done to strain the vines and naturally produce very low yields of outstanding fruit. All of the wines are fermented and aged in barrels for up to 16 months." -- Bobby Kacher 

2011 Domaine Claude Dugat Griottes-Chambertin Grand Cru....$449.99

Bright, deep red. Knockout perfume of red cherry, framboise, flowers and crushed stone. Wonderfully silky and sweet on entry, then reticent and primary in the mid-palate, showing less obvious power than the Charmes. Not a powerful style but finishes with outstanding finesse of tannins and a whiplash of red fruits and stone. This will call for at least five or six years of bottle aging.
Rated 92-95/100 Stephen Tanzer

2011 Claude Dugat Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru....$339.99
(10 btls available)
Good bright, dark red. Pure but subdued nose hints at black cherry and licorice. Juicy, intense and imploded, suggesting very pure dark fruits and salty minerals but coming across as rather clenched today. Most impressive on the rising, almost peppery finish, which stains the palate with flavor and stimulates the salivary glands.
Rated 91-91/100 Stephen Tanzer

2011 Claude Dugat Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St Jacques...$213.99
(10 bottles available)
Bright, dark red. Wild small red berries, soil tones and flowers on the complex, classic Gevrey nose. Silky-smooth and fine-grained in the mouth but at the same time precise and perfumed, with cherry and saline notes leading to a juicy, rising finish featuring round tannins and excellent lift. Lovely length here
Rated 90-93/100 Stephen Tanzer

2011 Claude Dugat Gevrey Chambertin AC....$109.99
(36 bottles available)Tangy, pure aromas of redcurrant, red cherry and minerals. Dark fruit flavors are complicated by notes of herbs, licorice and spices. In a moderately ripe style and a bit lean for this cuvee in the early going. Just a tad dried by reduction on the back end.
Rated 87-89/ Stephen Tanzer
