Nose - cranberry, rose hip tea, sour apple Mouth - nice expressive red fruit attack, very crisp but extremely clean and minerally on the midpalate with surprising mouthcoating tannins. Consumed after a weekend of Russian river tasting, and this is much more pure without any of the rootbeer or rhubarb that complicates those wines.
Dark violet in color. The nose has dark fruit, strawberry jam, Dujac aromas, and a little spice. Initially it is a bit tight with lots of oak. With about an hour in a grand cru glass, the wood fades and rich fruit remains. A bit of floral prettiness emerges with time. About twice as concentrated as the Hudelot Noellat version at almost twice the price. Definitely Dujac on the nose and palate. Very nice. Looking forward to a checking back in 5 and 10.
