Domaine Claude Dugat

Burgundy, burgundy France

Domaine Claude Dugat, established in 1955, is widely considered one of the top producers in Gevrey-Chambertin. It is a small family-run domaine, with Claude and Marie-Thérèse's children - son Bertrand and daughters Laetitia and Jeanne - taking over the running of the six hectare estate.

The domaine practices sustainable viticulture, never using fertilizers or herbicides. The aim is to have a light touch in the vineyard and to harvest the grapes when they are just ripe. Ripeness (and the harvest date) is determined solely by taste rather than by lab analysis, with the wines always having a signature freshness because they never pick late. The concentration and intensity of the wines is derived primarily from old vines and low yields.

The grapes are 100% de-stemmed and are fermented in concrete tanks with gentle punch downs for extraction. The wine is racked into barrel for malolactic fermentation, and is aged in oak for at least twelve months. The wines are bottled without fining or filtration. They are naturally clear after spending two winters in the cellar. The vines for the Bourgogne Rouge come from the village of Gevrey-Chambertin. The wine is made for enjoying now, having spent just over a year in one year old barrels. The Gevery-Chambertin Villages is alluring on the nose, which gives way to a rare mixture of intensity, depth and silkiness on the palate. The Gevrey Premier Cru is a blend from Craipillot and La Perrière vineyards, and is both rich and structured. The 'Lavaux St. Jacques' shows why many people think this should be a Grand Cru. It is vibrant yet rich, with perfumes of violets and blackberries on the nose and silky tannins on the palate. The Grand Crus, Charmes-Chambertin is powerful but elegant with a finish that is astonishingly long.

We are delighted to be working with this fine domaine. Volumes are relatively limited, especially of the top wines, so please let us know as soon as you can if you'd like some of these wines.
