Claude Dugat Gevrey Chambertin 2011
|Appellation||Cote de Nuits|
Wine AdvocateA blend of two lieux-dits, namely Crepilot and Perrieres, the 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru sees 50% new oak. It offers a perfumed, floral bouquet with small dark cherries, bergamot and vanilla pod that opens with aeration. The palate clearly boasts more body and backbone compared with the Village Cru. But it remains quite languid, nonchalant even, underpinned with fine tannins that are neatly folded into a sedate, sensual finish with wild strawberry and a touch of dark plum. This is very fine. Drink 2014-2020.
Wine SpectatorOffers an essence of black cherry, with violet and black currant accents. Agile yet saturated with flavor, this has firm, well-integrated tannins. Just needs a little time. Best from 2015 through 2023. 150 cases imported.
BurghoundThis is quite fresh, pure and elegant with the airy and cool aromas of red currant, spice, underbrush and Gevrey style earth. There is a touch of the sauvage to the quite supple and round medium-bodied flavors that exhibit attractive hints of minerality on the delicious, vibrant, mouth coating and lingering finish. Good stuff for a villages level wine and I especially like the fine grained tannins.
