Established in 1955 by Claude and Marie-Thérèse, Domaine Claude Dugat is a small family-run domaine and is widely considered one of the top producers in Gevrey-Chambertin. The domaine practises sustainable viticulture so they never use fertilisers or herbicides. They harvest grapes when they are just ripe, which is determined solely by taste instead of lab analysis, and thus creating wines that are fresh but also concentrated and intense thanks to the old-age vines. Upon harvesting, the grapes are 100% destemmed and fermented in concrete tanks with gentle punch downs for extraction. The wine is racked into a barrel and is aged in oak for at least 12 months, then bottled without fining or filtration. Among their range, their village Gevrey-Chambertin is alluring on the nose, which gives way to a rare mixture of intensity, depth and silkiness on the palate.
Today we are pleased to share with you our availability of their Gevrey-Chambertin 2002. This was commented by Allen Meadows to be "Outstanding" and to have "superb length for a village wine" by Stephen Tanzer. An excellent wine of value for money from Claude Dugat, don't miss! -
Claude Dugat Gevrey-Chambertin 2002
HK$1,590 per bottle
8 bottles available, Immediately Available from Stock
*Outstanding* Expressive, wonderfully complex, fresh and earthy fruit is followed by delicious, middle weight flavors whose intensity builds from the mid-palate and flowers on the long back end. Excellent quality at this level and the only small nit is a touch of finishing gas - be sure to decant this for 15 to 20 minutes first.
91pts Stephen Tanzer
Full ruby-red. High-pitched, wonderfully vibrant aromas of blackberry, violet, licorice, menthol, leather and game. Juicy, brisk and tightly wound, with sharply delineated flavors of black fruits, licorice, menthol and fresh herbs. This has real sap, as well as superb length for a village wine.
90-91pts Wine Advocate
The graphite and black fruit-scented 2002 Gevrey-Chambertin coats the palate with flavors reminiscent of black cherries, blackberries, and lead pencils.
