Wine for laying down, but can be appreciated when young after carafing for several hours before serving. Bernard's wines are so intense because they are so concentrated from the juice that goes into the wine. That Bernard is a genius in vinifying Pinot Noir doesn't hurt either.

Wine AdvocateFrom parcels described in my issue 186 review of its 2006 installment, the Dugat-Py 2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux displays a sweetness and tenderness of cassis and elderberry fruit that contrasts dramatically with the near-severity as well as the animal and mineral complexities of the corresponding Lavaux-St.-Jacques. Tart hints of Maine blueberry and bittersweet herbal pungency that emerge on the palate offer counterpoint to the wine's flattering, vintage-atypical creaminess of texture. This beauty finishes with a sense of transparency to shimmering, crystalline minerality. About as polished and suave as a 2008 gets - yet preserving admirable vivacity and primary juiciness - it ought to merit at least 15 years of attention and will likely gain additional complexity in the process.
