Wine Advocate 90 points - There are only three barrels this year of Dugat-Py 2008 Vosne-Romanee Vieilles Vignes. Black tea, dark berries, and violets beautifully scent it, and a creamy texture and sweetly-ripe berry fruit are underlain on the palate by an aura of forest floor and a fine suffusion of tannin. Hints of licorice as well as a spot of astringency in the finish point toward the total inclusion of stems in the fermentor, but the generosity of finishing fruit and intriguing depth are memorably persistent. This is a fine candidate for a decade of fascinating satisfaction.
