RATINGS

92The Wine Advocate

...mingling notes of cherries and berries with nuances of rose petals, spices, sweet soil tones and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety...charming and precise, with a beautifully integrated, balanced profile.

89-91Vinous / IWC

...floral bouquet of pure red cherries and crushed strawberry fruit that blossoms in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a precise, elegant finish.

89-91Burghound.com

...dark currant, plum and freshly turned earth introduces very rich and attractively vibrant middle weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the youthfully austere finish...

PRODUCER

Domaine Claude Dugat

Owned by the Claude Dugat family, this relatively small domain for many years sold its wines to other negociants. But in recent years the Gevrey-Chambertin-based domain started bottling under its own label and it has quickly won acclaim for its Chambertin. With about 15 acres planted to Pinot Noir, the estate produces highly limited quantities of wine, usually about 3,000 to 5,000 bottles. Robert M. Parker Jr. calls the domaine’s wines “modern-styled Burgundies because they can be drunk young, but they age well.”

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Gevrey-Chambertin

Côte de Nuits is the northern part of the Côte d’Or and it includes the most famous vineyards and wine communes in the world. There are more Grand Cru appellations in the Côte de Nuits than anywhere else in Burgundy. Of the fourteen communes, or villages in the Côte de Nuits, six produce Grand Cru wines. They are Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St.-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Flagey-Échezeaux and Vosne-Romanee. Some of the vineyards within the Côte de Nuits are tiny, which adds to their prestige. The fabled Grand Cru vineyard La Romanee is barely two square acres. Altogether there are twenty-four Grand Cru vineyards. The region takes its name from the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Côtes de Nuits produces mostly reds from Pinot Noir, and the wines have been in demand for centuries. During the 18th century King Louis XIV’s physician recommended that for his health the king only drink wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Like most of Burgundy, the soils of the Côte de Nuit can vary greatly from one vineyard to another, though most are a base soil of limestone mixed with clay, gravel and sand.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, AOC (AC)

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
