Critical Acclaim

92 points Allen Meadows – Burghound

A slightly riper nose features aromas of cassis, spice, earth and violets along with sauvage nuances. There is plenty of muscle on the extract-rich, intense and impressively dense middleweight flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the overtly powerful and moderately rustic finish. This is a very serious Gevrey village that will require at least a decade of bottle age before it will be ready for prime time. (1/2015)


91 points Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

 (60% new oak; Dugat owns 2.5 hectares of vines here, making this his largest cuvée): Healthy deep red. Pure aromas of blackberry, licorice and violet. Juicy and sharply delineated, with the black fruit flavors complicated by an element of smoky torrefaction. Nicely balanced, linear village wine with good length. (Dugat’s Vosne-Romanée Vieilles Vignes was still finishing its malolactic fermentation in November.) (1/2015)


90 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roy is from four parcels around the commune, raised in 60% new oak with half destemmed. It has a forward, quite high-toned bouquet at the moment that is showing more of the new oak than, say, the Pommard. The palate is succulent in the mouth with plenty of cassis fruit. It is very concentrated on the finish, although I would like to see it develop a little more finesse by the time of bottling. (12/2014)
