This is easily the most elegant and refined wine to this point with exuberant red berry fruit aromas, spice, warm earth and a touch of anise leading to rich, full-bodied and taut flavors that possess excellent concentration that completely buffers the firm but buried tannins. A beautiful combination of power and finesse. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Jan, 2007

Dugat’s 2005 Griotte-Chambertin offers startlingly concentrated aromas and flavors of ripe black raspberry, cherry and cassis, backed by cherry stone bitterness and underlain by marrow-like meaty suggestions and chalk. This displays a flatteringly creamy, subtly oily texture as well as real lift and verve on the palate, not being in the least weighed down by its palpable high extract and intensity of fruit. The finish is both strikingly long and – for all of the wine’s manifest ripeness and brightness – relatively austerely chalky, nutty and cyanic. In fact, you’d need a geologist’s pick to unpack the back end of this striking wine, and at least a dozen years before it would be worth sacrificing a bottle in the interests of interim evaluation.
