2011-Domaine Dugat-Py Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru
Grand Cru Charmes-Chambertin, Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy, France
“Dew-Guh Pea Shurm Shum-bear-tan”
Tucked away in a small village on the north end of Burgundy this small estate specializes in coaxing out the essence of Chambertin’s masculine character: aromas of dark fruits, dried flower petals, potpourri of oriental spices, savory truffle mushrooms and stoney earthiness. The athletic tannins just beg for rich meat dishes or intense cheeses, but please allow for a minimum of 2 hours for decanting. A virile, yet elegant tour de force.
