Dugat-Py Gevrey Chambertin Cuvee 'Coeur de Roy' 2018

Product description

94 Points - Decanter...  Three parcels, all of them planted with the old-vine massal selections that are an important feature of the Dugat-Py holdings, make up this superb village red.  It's focussed, fragrant and refined, with subtle aromatic spices from 50% whole bunches, glossy tannins and a fresh, mineral-edged finish. Drinking Window 2024 - 2030. 

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate...  Unfurling in the glass with a deep bouquet of peonies, wild berries, cherries and loamy soil, the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roy is full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, endowed with real texture and mid-palate amplitude. Muscular and concentrated, it's beautifully complete, with lively acids and refined if abundant tannins. From barrel, I suggested that readers might think of this particular rendition of Dugat-Py's emblematic communal Gevrey as a baby Charmes-Chambertin, and that contention holds up in bottle.
