Claude Dugat Gevrey Chambertin 2012
|Region||France, Burgundy, Morey Saint Denis|
Enticing aromas of ripe cherry, bilberry, floral and spice highlight this rich, supple red. There's no shortage of structure, with muscular tannins underneath. Offers an excellent cherry, smoke and mineral finish. Best from 2018 through 2028. 20 cases imported.
The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Village comes from around 15 parcels mostly from around the south of village and towards Brochon, the malo-lactics late and not finishing until July. It has a clean, pure bouquet with lifted cassis and raspberry fruit, touches of cold stone and a subtle marine influence. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, good depth and substance for a village cru. The wood shows just a little bit here, with a fine grip on the finish. Give this a year after bottling and you will have a dependable village cru.
