The Laveaux Saint Jacques 1999 from Dugat-Py is a dense and youthful wine. In the bouquet loads of primary fruit … slightly monolithic .. with powerful notes of raspberries – quite dark fruit but still expressive and forward. On the palate rich and muscular yet quite silky fruit … a powerhouse with more balance than refinement. On the positive side .. a big and quite harmonious wine. On the negative side .. somewhat extracted and with almost no sign of maturity at age 15.… Read the full article →
The Mazis Chambertin 2000 from Dugat-Py is still surprisingly youthful and fresh. In the bouquet ripe and deep red berry fruit with fresh notes of raspberries – spiced with truffles and a lovely earthy minerlity. On the palate layers of deep and intense red fruit – complex, rich and quite dense. It’s long, harmonious and perfectly balanced – very impressive for the vintage. It’s drinking quite well now … but will improve with further cellaring. Bottom line – a great effort for the 2000 vintage – but lacking the depth and nerve of a great vintage.… Read the full article →
The 2002 Gevrey Chambertin Petite Chapelle from Dugat-P is still young and quite vibrant. In the nose fresh raspberry notes … beginning to have more complex hints of truffle and sous-bois. On the palate fresh and juicy raspberry fruit … fine length with a quite intense earthy minerality in the finish. It’s quite undeveloped and slightly austere with it’s slightly monolitich fruit and tar notes. Nevertheless a quite refined effort … but need time to unfold. I have quite high expectations for the 02 Dugat-Py wines … and really hope they will get some complex mature notes before the lovely fruit declines …

Dugat-Py in Gevrey-Chambertin is in many ways a quite extreme producer, with very concentrated and intense wines. Some really adore his style, while others dislike the quite extracted wines he makes.
While the level of extraction have been reduced since the 90s it’s still interesting to see how these more extracted vintages are ageing today.
This weekend I had the chance to taste three older Dugat-Py wines – Petite-Chapelle 1993 + 2002 and Mazis-Chambertin 2000.… Read the full article →
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 →
