Domaine Claude Dugat, Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux Saint Jacques 1er Cru 1998

Dugat Lavaux 1998

Atherton Wine Imports, San Jose CA.

Twenty years on.

Ruby.  Built like a house and oceans deep; one doesn’t grasp the whole of this until the last drops of the bottle.  Fruit and ore abound and the pancetta richness bubbles up from underneath.  Like an Iberico bellota end loin, with the spice and bite of fennel seed, chervil and licorice.  The finish shows a lacy, immaculate sun-on-snow poise.  Now – 2023+.
