2019 Domaine Claude Dugat Gevrey Chambertin

SKU #1552936 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Bursting with aromas of cherries, sweet wild berries, coniferous forest floor, spices and smoke, the 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Village is medium-bodied, layered and melting, with supple tannins, lively acids, a perfumed core of fruit and a sapid finish. It's the latest installment in what is becoming a series of exquisitely elegant vintages for the Gevrey AOC bottling chez Dugat. The 2019 portfolio is another resounding success for the increasingly self assured Bertrand Dugat, who began picking on September 9 and who reported alcohol levels ranging between 12.6% and 13.1%—something that should confound any of the insufficiently informed stereotypes that already begin to circulate about this very fine vintage. As I've written before, a generational transition—Claude having handed the reins over to son Bertrand and daughters Laetitia and Jeanne—has been discreetly realized at Domaine Claude Dugat: The family's meticulous viticulture and enviable patrimony of old, sélection massale vines remain unchanged, but there have been subtle stylistic evolutions.

88-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark There is just enough wood lurking in the background of the equally fresh red berry, sauvage and earth-scented aromas to comment on. There is fine richness and outstanding punch to the concentrated and moderately serious flavors that culminate in a youthfully austere and sneaky long finale. This balanced effort should age well and if it can add depth, it should merit the upper portion of my projected range. Inner quote mark (1/2021)
