The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Champeaux 1er Cru saw 50% whole bunch with two-thirds new oak. It has a subtle, cerebral bouquet featuring gorgeous black fruit mixed with sea spray, cockle sheds and graphite aromas; this is very classy. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very intense and energetic, leading to a sorbet-fresh, blood-orange-infused finish that has a lot of potential. Cellar this Champeaux for five or six years if you can, because it has ambition.
A fine follow-up to the lovely 2018 rendition, Dugat-Py's 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Champeaux opens in the glass with aromas of raspberries and cherries, complemented by hints of violets, smoked meats, rich soil tones and a pretty top note of rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with real texture and mid-palate amplitude, it's lively and penetrating, with a long, fragrant finish. As I've written before, these vines have been in the family for a long time, and the Champeaux was often purchased by Maison Leroy in the days before the Dugat family began domaine bottling.
