Domaine CLAUDE DUGAT Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Lavaux Saint-Jacques" 2017
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: "The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques is also showing well from bottle, wafting from the glass with a deep bouquet of red berries, spices, orange rind, woodsmoke and rich soil tones. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and succulent, with velvety tannins, lively acids and a layered core, concluding with a long and fragrant finish." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
About the winery: Domaine Claude Dugat, founded in 1955, is widely considered one of the best producers in Gevrey-Chambertin.
The six hectares of vineyard, cultivated without chemical fertilizers or weedkillers, deliver only a small quantity of bottles: the demand is so high that there is no more wine to sell at the property. Claude Dugat wines have the finesse, depth and persistence of great Pinot Noirs.
