The Dugat-Py Coeur du Roy 2010 is a big dense village wine. The bouquet is quite expressive with loads of lush red and dark fruit spiced with oak and a quite strong floral note. The palate offer a incredible concentration for a village wine – it’s big, quite openly knit and with a weight of a 1er cru. The terroir expression does however not quite match the abundant concentration, and this does leave you with a somewhat rustic feel. Would have loved a stronger expression of Gevrey Chambertin terroir to match the amazing concentration – and a little less producer impression.… Read the full article →
The Vosne-Romanee 2002 V.V. is really starting to show. It’s made from the two Flagey lieux-dits, Les Quartier de Nuits and Les Violettes. The bouquet is showing sweet red fruit with notes of raspberries, sous-bois, asian spices – hints of violets, orange peel. On the palate still quite some grip from the tannins, but also a good concentration of maturing red fruit. The fruit is dense and well structured with a both silky and tannic touch. It’s focused, quite refined and very powerful for this level.… Read the full article →
The Laveaux St. Jacques from Dugat-Py is starting to show some matured complexity. In the bouquet sweet red fruits – strawberries and raspberries – with notes of sous Bois, orange peel and tar. Powerful and muscular on the palate with a quite strong tannic grip in the finish … but not that far from being open. Starting to show some juicy red fruit on the midpalate – has good energy and fine length with a quite spicy acidity. Needs a few more years in the cellar to show more complexity on the palate.… Read the full article →
The 2002 vintage from Dugat-Py is very charming compared to the quite dark style of the older vintages. The Coeur du Roy is no exception, and it’s now really beginning to show. In the bouquet quite some matured notes. Red fruit, slight orange peel, a hint of tar. On he palate very juicy with a nice balance with both red and dark fruits – delicate cool and ripe fruit. Very vibrant with fine fruit aromas, complimented with orange notes and cassis in the finish.… Read the full article →
The VV 2002 is showing some mature notes in the bouquet, but is still rather closed on the palate. Still some hard tannins, and a core of dark unresolved fruit – typical Dugat-Py. Not showing at the moment, and needs additional time in the celler. Not a big wine, and it really need to mature and soften, before it will be a real pleasure.
(from 2016) Good – 87p
First time in a long time I have tasted Dugat-Py 2002. More open than expected, and showing some red fruit and sweet notes in the bouquet along with some tar. Also quite open on the palate, with quite some lush coulis fruit. Would have expected a more closed wine, but the 2002s seems like they are getting mature notes before than first expected. I really like what I taste, fine balance, very good concentration and length, while the terroir is good rather than great.… Read the full article →
