Domaine Claude Dugat
Without doubt in the top 10 producers in Burgundy, and one of the top 2 or 3 producers of Gevrey Chambertin. Claude knows every inch of his vineyards and it is this zeal and fanaticism that makes his wines so extraordinary. They are also made in tiny quantities with strictly limited availability and are quite expensive.
With some of the oldest vines of any Domaine in Burgundy, some as old as 70 years old, it is with no surprise that Dugat yields as little as 18 hectolitres per hectare. Dugat's Pinot berries speak of terroir and deliver focused fruit flavors that can electrify, even shock, the palate with uncompromising purity. With no filtration, no fining and little intervention during vinification, it should come as no surprise that Dugat's Pinots are so highly prized for their clean and racy style.
