An excellent wine growner and family domaine in Gevrey-Chambertin, Domaine Dugat Py has made a name for themselves with their use of remarkably old vines and traditional style of winemaking. Some of their vines are nearly a hundred years old which leads to the production of some of the most deep-coloured, concentrated and dense wines from Gevrey-Chambertin. Their wines usually benefit when given a certain time in aging.
The domaine started doing their bottles in 1989, and Dugat Py started making “Coeur de Roy Vieilles Vignes” in 1993, which is considered the best-valued from their line-up – made from vines of 50 to 95 years of age, aged in 65% new wood and vinified with stems. Sometimes they are restrained when they are young, however when they are mature, they are always impressive with a textured and concentrated body as well as persistent finish. Also made from old vines, Gevrey-Chambertin Les Evocelles Vieilles Vignes is another wine from Dugat Py to keep an eye on, from a single parcel located in northern side of the village, the cool breeze from the hill gives Les Evocelles pleasure elegance and charm.
We have a couple of bottles of each available, which are released from Domaine Dugat Py in 2015 and haven’t been moved from their professional cellar ever since. Having aged in the cellar itself beautifully for 10 years, these impeccable bottles will be much harder to find as time goes by -
Dugat Py Coeur de Roy Vieilles Vignes 2005 (Released from domaine in 2015)
HK$1,430 per bottle
92 pts Allen Meadows “Outstanding”
A deeply pitched and slightly riper nose of cassis and spiced plum adds nuance to the intensely earthy aromas where the earth character can also be found on the rich, full and voluminous flavors that are almost opulent on the mid-palate yet the finish is borderline austere. This is a very serious effort that has a velvety texture but tightens up quickly on the backend due to the buried structure. Terrific potential here in a "built for the long haul" package that delivers amazing quality for its level.
Dugat Py Gevrey-Chambertin "Les Evocelles" 2005 (Released from domaine in 2015)
HK$1,430 per bottle
90-92 pts Allen Meadows “Outstanding
As it always is, this is a step up in aromatic elegance with airy, refined and cool dark berry fruit aromas and hints of underbrush highlighting the mineral-infused and plumy flavors that are fresh, vibrant, detailed and punchy, all wrapped in a precise and linear finish. A stunningly good wine for its level.
