Domaine Dugat-Py's Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2013 can be enjoyed when relatively young, if decanted for serveral hours before serving - a rare characteristic in Burgundy wines. The secret lies in the Domaine's vines - while treated organicaly since 2003, they are around 30 to 50 years old and yield elegant, ripe fruit. Only 3,000 to 4,000 bottles are produced every year.

About The Winery
The Dugat family have been handcrafting quality wines in the prestigious Gevrey-Chambertin appellation of Burgundy since the beginning of the 17th century. They are involved in a constant environmental engagement in their plots of vines which are mostly very old vines. By following the unique Burgundy tradition, the Dugat-Py style harkens to the type of wines made in Burgundy in the 1960’s and before. The wines are very dark in color, concentrated, rich, full bodiead and elegant. As much as possible, Bernard the winemaker, leaves the wine alone to make itself, uses only naturally occuring yeast and includes the use of stems during fermentation to soften the tannins.
