Wine Critic Reviews for 2002 Claude Dugat Charmes Chambertin

The magnificently expressive 2002 Charmes-Chambertin boasts a floral, spicy nose packed with fresh red fruits. Spicy, concentrated, powerful, yet elegant, this cherry-dominated, medium-bodied wine exhibits spice box ands coffee notes in its extensive finish. Harmonious, refined, and extroverted, it is a candidate for drinking between 2006 and 2015.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 96-97 RP
(Domaine Claude Dugat Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Red) A subtle background note of wood frames gorgeously elegant and highly nuanced aromas of red pinot fruit and the harmony of expression and sheer complexity of the textured, velvety, delicious, complex and altogether serious flavors is spectacular plus the richness of the finish is almost hard to believe. This too is very concentrated and 8 to 10 years of bottle age should be perfect to reveal the full potential here. In short, this is a real stunner of a wine. (Drink starting 2010)

The 2002 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from a period when I feel that Dugat had a tendency to slightly over-extract their wine. Deep in colour, it has a dense, smudged bouquet, a mélange of red and black fruits, becoming almost pastille-like with aeration. There is a light oyster shell scent that becomes apparent, though it always remains quite glossy. The palate is well structured and, like the nose, feels quite dense and sinewy. There is a sense of “mass” to this Charmes-Chambertin that delivers an attractive redcurrant and cranberry, almost confit-like on the finish. In summary, this is a wine that I admire rather than enjoy. Tasted at the Gevrey-Chambertin lunch at China Tang in Hong Kong.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Every new bottle is an adventure of its own, and a snapshot of its birthplace.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
