Domaine Claude Dugat Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux-Saint-Jacques Premier Cru 2008

This is a resoundingly delicious wine from Claude Dugat.  From Lavaux-Saint-Jacques, the biggest of the Gevrey-Chambertin premier cru vineyards at 9.53 hectares and situated immediately south of Clos Saint-Jacques, the wine is quite deeply coloured (for pinot noir) and opens to aromatics of blackcurrants, fruit and violets.  The palate has fantastic length, with fresh acidity, tannins and great fruit.  This wine can be approached now, but should evolve and improve with a decade in the cellar.  Rating: Outstanding. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $300+. Website: na. Tasted: October 2018.
