Resin, talcum, and dark fresh berries scent the Claude Dugat 2008 Griotte-Chambertin, which displays a formidable concentration of cassis and boysenberry on a palate supported by fine tannins. Cherry pit bitterness, peat, and licorice lend dark diversity to this grand cru’s long finish, while a sense of chalkiness pulls it in a slightly austere direction, accentuated I suspect by its recent bottling. This long, strong Griotte should have at least 15 years’ potential. ||Claude Dugat reports that his triage in 2008 was more for rot than under-ripe berries, since his routine willingness to resort to drastic crop-dropping serves to guarantee that the fruit matures. He did however report back-off slightly on the total length of maceration. Wine Advocate.June, 2010
