2006 Mazoyeres Chambertin

The Dugat-Py 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Mazoyeres-Chambertin displays resinous and high-toned herbal concentrate notes that tend to signal one's approach to Morey-St.-Denis. (These vines are younger than those neighboring and incorporated into Dugat's Charmes.) Concentrated, lightly-cooked plum and blackberry mingle with Szechuan pepper, sassafras, peat, and licorice on a sappy, pungent, firmly tannic palate. Where around 75% of the fruit was destemmed for the Charmes, here only half was, and that probably helps enhance the pungency this fruit exhibits, as well as perhaps the overall level of tannin. This is going to want 4-5 years in bottle before it makes sense to revisit, by I would expect at least 6-8 years of impressive performance thereafter. Dec 2009, www.robertparker.com
