Bernard Dugat-Py

Bernard Dugat-Py

The heaven-sent flavours and super velvet textures of the Dugat-Py wines are the result of sheer dedication in nurturing extremely low yielding, very old vines which average almost 70 years of age, with some being over 100. Bernard Dugat converted to organic viticulture in 2003 and tries to use horses to work the vineyards wherever possible. 

The 10 ha domaine centres on the family home in a hamlet below the Clos Saint-Jacques vineyard. Its striking cellars, with their high vaulted ceiling and columns, date from the 11th and 12th centuries, once belonging to St Benedict's Abbey in Dijon. A side crypt is stuffed to the gunnels with Bernard Dugat’s personal collection of wine from eminent estates around the world. He can trace his own winemaking heritage in Gevrey-Chambertin back through his grandmother to 1645. The Dugat estate dates in name from 1923, while the ‘Py’ suffix is his wife Jocelyne’s maiden name. Their son Loïc will represent the 13th generation to run the estate. Local holdings have been supplemented in recent times by vines in Beaune, Pommard, Meursault and Chassagne to give more strings to his bow. Quantities from this, one of the top addresses in Burgundy, are tiny so visitors are few (but those that do get in are welcomed with a broad smile) and every drop is poured back into the barrel after tasting. Dugat-Py wines should never be drunk too young: Bernard advises not to broach them before six years and the grand crus not before ten!
