Claude Dugat Gevrey-Chambertin 2015

France - Burgundy
100% Pinot Noir
75 cl
13% ABV

Intensity and purity are the hallmarks of Claude Dugat's style; the wines can take a few years to unfurl, and this stunning 2014 is now showing its class, with fresh berry aromas grounded by savoury, gamy notes on the palate.

This Pinot Noir has notes of red and dark currant and sweet forest strawberries, brought forward by a quite powerful minerality, with hints of violets and peony rose. On the palate, this wine is rich, deep and balanced.

The grapes were 100% destemmed. After crushing, the must was cold soaked prior to fermentation for a period of six days. Fermentation is started immediately in concrete vats, but there is virtually no pumping over so as to avoid too tumultuous a fermentation. Grapes are punched down twice a day. Total vatting time is about two weeks after which the juice is left to settle for two days before going to barrel. The wine was then matured in oak barrels for 18 months, 50% in new French oak.

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 fertilisers 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.
