Winemaker Notes

Wine for laying down, but can be appreciated when young after carafing for several hours before serving.


Rated 96 Points Decanter
The Dugat-Pys' 0.5ha parcel has an average age of 60 years and faces east on clay-dominated soils. Made with 60% whole clusters and 66% new wood, it's plusher and denser than some of the domaine's Premiers Crus with slightly shuttered tannins, plenty of colour and dark fruit intensity, racy acidity and the structure and concentration to age further in bottle.

Rated 94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Aromas of wild berries, cherries, sweet spices and petals introduce the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Champeaux, a medium to full-bodied, lively and muscular wine that's deep and concentrated, built around bright acids and an elegantly muscular chassis of tannins. Seamless and complete, this is beautifully balanced for the long haul.

Here the more expressive nose is quite floral and high-toned with its mélange of red currant, pomegranate and soft earth scents. Once again there is excellent mid-palate density to the sleek, intense and powerful flavors that flash fine detail and minerality on the mildly austere, complex and strikingly long finish. This is a classic Champeaux of power and grace though one that is also clearly constructed to age for years.
