One of the top domaines in Burgundy, Dugat-Py also has one of the most impressive and extensive cellars in the region, originally built in 11th century for the Abbey of Saint Benigné in Dijon. Loïc Dugat, now 13th generation, is continuing the family tradition of making some of the greatest and most sought-after wines in Burgundy, from the family’s eleven hectares of perfectly-sited vineyards, planted with vines averaging nearly seventy years old. Everything is done by hand, while a horse is used to plough a few of the vineyards. The domaine has been fully organic since 2003, with Loïc now working biodynamically across a number of sites. The wines are vinified with as little intervention as possible and are bottled unfined and unfiltered. Since 2017 the use of new oak has been reduced which really allows the quality of these sites and the character of the old vine fruit to shine through from barrel. Under Loic’s stewardship and with a string of superb vintages, Dugat-Py is now firly back in the front rank of Burgundy’s top domaines. These are not inexpensive wines but if you consider that the village level “Vielles Vignes” and “Coeur du Roy” are better than most grower’s 1er Crus, whilst Dugat-Py’s 1er Crus are more thrilling than a lot of others’ Grand Crus then it helps put purchases in perspective.
"This is the oldest parcel owned by the domaine, three hectares in three parcels, including right next to Lavaut Saint Jacques, and Clos Saint Jacques. Really elegant but penetrating, high-toned nose, pure and crystalline, but velvety red berries, orange peel and autumnal air over white stones. Satisfying succulence and concentration, centred on a stony core - a mineral monolith around which red cherries and red plums dance, tightly wound, and with well delineated tannins drawing the stones and fruit to an extended finish. This “baby Charmes” is an impressive follow up to 2018, it will be a teat to compare the two side by side in a decade or two." Tom Harrow, Wine Guru
"50- to 110-year-old vines. Cask sample. Very heady indeed – a liqueur on the nose! Incredibly rich! Yet with sufficient life and acidity. Amazing punch. Real excitement – concentration but not too much tannin." 17 pts, Jancis Robinson
"Always the richest and most muscular of Dugat-Py's communal bottlings, the 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roy unwinds in the glass with aromas of raspberries, plums, forest floor, spices and grilled meats. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and layered, with a broad-shouldered chassis of fine, powdery tannins and lively acids, it's long and penetrating. As usual, it derives from vines between 50 and 109 years of age located in the lieux-dits Epointures, Combe du Dessus, Jouise and Les Marchais, and it was vinified with 60% whole cluster and raised in 50% new oak. Having visited the domaine's vines before harvest, I can attest that its deep, saturated hue comes from an abundance of tiny, shot berries with a high skins-to-juice ratio, rather than to any desire to push extraction in the winery." 91-93 pts, William Kelley, Wine Advocate
