Wine Critic Reviews for 2018 Claude Dugat Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru

Bertrand Dugat makes this harmonious Premier Cru blend with grapes from Craipillot and La Perrière, ageing the result in 75% new wood. It's a charming, even ethereal style that has a winning balance of sweet red fruits and crunchy acidity. Delicate and fine-boned, which is not always the case with Craipillot, it has graceful tannins and well-integrated wood. A wine that isn't trying too hard. (Drink between 2022-2028).

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has turned out very nicely in bottle, mingling notes of cherries and berries with nuances of rose petals, spices, sweet soil tones and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, it's charming and precise, with a beautifully integrated, balanced profile. This is one of the vintage's real successes at the communal level, and it's already disarmingly drinkable.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 92 RP
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru is the usual assemblage of vines in La Perrière and Crepiot. It has a slightly sullen bouquet at the moment, more introverted than the Gevrey Village. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins. Quite elegant in style and very harmonious, leading to a piquant finish that lingers. Understated... but effective!

(Domaine Claude Dugat Gevrey-Chambertin "1er" 1er Cru Red) Ripe, fresh and densely fruited aromas speak of various dark berries, earth and a whiff of forest floor. The notably finer middle weight flavors exude evident minerality before culminating in a seductively textured if notably firm finish where a touch of bitter cherry pit arises. This is lovely though note that at least some patience is necessary. (Drink starting 2030).

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.

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.
