Delivers the goods as expected - at peak now. Lovely nose of black cherry and violets. Very smooth tannins, good acidity and balance on the palate. A round yet somewhat masculine interpretation of Chambolle.
Animale on the nose, with dark red fruits, earth, and oak. This is robust, and broodish, with an edge of fresh beets to the briary red fruits here. Masculine and edgy, this has power to burn but is short on finesse. Perhaps time will sort out some of the edginess. Judged as a villages wine, this would be very good indeed, even considering how easy it was (relatively speaking) to make outstanding wine in the 2005 vintage, but I expected more from Dujac, and was somewhat disappointed.
