Robert Parker

Bernard Dugat’s 2008 Pommard La Levriere suggests that he is still taking the measure of the terroir and ancient vines that inform it, and of their potential. Smoked meat, cedar, and game in the nose subsequently mingle with tart blackberry for a firm, palate-staining impression that lingers with a relatively stubborn, tough tanninity. Here is an instance where I question whether Dugat’s usual high percentage of vendange entier works to his wine’s advantage, or will even as it evolves.

Domaine Dugat Py

Nestled in the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation, the Dugat family has been iconic winegrowers since the early 17th century. Today, Bernard Dugat and his son, Loïc, representing the 13th generation, continue to honor and enhance the rich legacy, drawing from the expertise cultivated over four centuries. Their estate sits at the base of the Combe de Lavaux, near the historic heart of the village, where the Chaplaincy buildings, once owned by the Abbey St Bénigne of Dijon since the late 9th century, stand. From these ancient edifices, the estate's cellars, masterfully constructed in the 11th and 12th centuries under Chaplain Halinard's guidance, have endured. These hallowed chambers, bearing witness to nearly a millennium of winemaking history, now cradle the Dugat-Py wines as they age gracefully for 18 to 24 months. The tradition, echoing through the centuries, is very much alive under the watchful eyes of the Dugat family.
