On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and expansive, with a deep core of fruit that cloaks its rich structuring tannins and a long, succulent finish. While the wine displays all the exuberant breadth that's so typical of this cuvée, the cooler vintage lends it a sense of coiled energy that warmer years miss, and I suspect this will develop especially well in bottle.- WK

Vinified with 50% whole cluster fruit, this is an assembly of five parcels of Charmes, plus one of Mazoyères which is considered to be closer in geology to the former than stonier Mazoyères. The resulting wine is very fine, bursting from the glass with a huge bouquet of briary black fruit, red cherry, burning embers, rose petal and grilled meat. On the palate the wine is deep and multidimensional, its expansive attack cutting a broad swathe across the palate. It has a core of sweet, vibrant and rich fruit, and an impressive structural chassis which is almost entirely concealed - its suppleness should make this the most immediate of the Dugat-Py grand crus.

Thick and densely packed but fine-grained--and hard to taste owing to the strong element of reduction. A bit stunted and sauvage today but the wine's ripe, dusty tannins spread out horizontally to saturate the palate. This is reduced straight through to the finish, but its impressive concentration and late-arriving minerality are quite promising. Today I prefer the Lavaux for its class but I may be underestimating this wine.- ST
