A beautiful and captivating bouquet. Crisp red currant and cranberry balanced by a stony minerality. Medium in body, gorgeous mid-palate depth and definition. A fabulous pairing to red meat, whether grilled or in a rich sauce. It will also be excellent with strong cheese.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru is from the red soils lieu-dit of Gemeaux that lends his Chapelle more structure. It is clearly adorned with the most complex, perhaps most captivating bouquet of Claude's three Grand Crus. There is a sense of transparency here, as if you are peering into the vineyard. The minerality is the most expressive with stony aromas blossoming with aeration. The palate is intense right from the start with crisp red currant and cranberry, extremely well-defined with wonderful tension and poise toward the long finish. This is clearly the outstanding 2011 from Dugat and should age beautifully over the next two decades. Drink now-2030.
