Gevrey-Chambertin 1er cru Champeaux, Dugat-Py 2013



£230.00

75cl ALC 13%

Super weight of fruit, elegant too, with a lovely floral character amongst the ripe damson fruit. Lots of depth and complexity but wonderfully balanced tannins and acidity make it very harmonious.

Bernard Dugat-Py

The heaven-sent flavours and gossamer textures of the Dugat-Py wines are the result of sheer dedication in nurturing extremely low-yielding, very old vines.

These average almost 70 years of age, with some being over a hundred. Bernard Dugat converted to organic viticulture in 2003 and it is now his son, Loïc, who tries to use horses to work the vineyards wherever possible. With around 13 ha of vines, the domaine centres on the family home in a hamlet below the Clos St-Jacques vineyard. Its striking cellars, with their high vaulted ceiling and columns, date from the 11th century, once belonging to St Benedict’s Abbey in Dijon. The Dugats can trace their own winemaking heritage in Gevrey-Chambertin back through Loïc’s great-grandmother to 1645. The Dugat estate dates in name from 1923, while the ‘Py’ suffix is his mother Jocelyne’s maiden name. Loïc represents the 13th generation to run the estate while his wife looks after the office. Local holdings have been supplemented in recent times by vines in Beaune, Pommard, Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet and most recently Chorey-lès-Beaune. Quantities are tiny so visitors are few but welcomed with broad smiles, and not a drop of wine is wasted. Less new wood is used now, but we still advise customers to wait to open their bottles: five years for the 1er crus and eight for the grand crus.

Vintage guide

The region basked under the summer sun in 2022, and thanks to cool nights the wines have avoided excess alcohol while retaining elegance, it all looks very promising. The 2021 vintage was severely affected by frost in the spring which means yields are historically low, the wines are fresh and juicy. 2020 was one of the earliest vintages on record following a warm summer but the wines have an appealing freshness too, like a combination of the previous two vintages. There was an absence of frost in 2019 but yields were still restricted, this time by drought, the resulting wines have great richness and concentration. A very good vintage in 2018 with no frosts in the early part of the season though rain in the first half of summer caused some disease pressure. Hail affected Nuits St-Georges and the Hautes-Côtes reducing yields. The resulting wines are rich and concentrated. Quantities in 2017 will be better than 2016 with equally good results. They are more red fruited than black, showing great elegance. 2016 proved a rollercoaster of a season with everything thrown at the growers in the early season but what fruit survived through to harvest is very good. Quantities, however, are small. 2015 is a memorable vintage for red Burgundy, certainly on the rich side. The red wines of 2014 are more ‘classic’, have a great combination of red and black fruits as well as being charmingly approachable in their youth. After a late start and a cool summer, a dry September saved the day in 2013, the Pinot being light but very pure.
