Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
100% Pinot Noir
Vineyards & Viticulture
From a mix of 20+ year-old vines and 90 year-old vines. One-third of this bottling comes from a plot of Mazoyères-Chambertin, about 164 feet away from Dugat-Py’s other Mazoyères parcel, which is bottled separately. Old vine Pinot Fin that generates very low yields and naturally concentrated berries. All selection massale, using their best Pinot Fin to replant. The vineyards are tended like a garden, with horse plowing, biodynamic teas prepared in-house, and no trimming of the canopy. Organic vineyard management since 2003.
Clay and limestone with small pebbles
