Seriously good village wine that is as fresh as a trout. Creamy, sweet cherry fruits are laced with flora. Flesh overlays a base of mineral in the mouth. It is opulent and mouthfilling with good structure to the finish. Absolutely punches above its weight so far as level is concerned.
Visit to Domaine Dujac (Morey-Saint-Denis): Served blind. A complex bouquet. Dark cherry liqueur with secondary developments of sous-bois. On palate, clear and focused, good grip with balance and power. In the dark fruit spectrum. Sappy cherry and stony clarity. This is drinking beautifully. Very long finish. I picked the vintage but thought the wine at least a 1er. A Villages wine performing well above its rank. This is ready to drink but will not fall off for a long time.
Classic whole-cluster spice and florals on the nose, good weight on the palate with balanced acidity. Fabulous with a range of foods, this drinks like a typical Dujac and that makes me happy. With a couple of hours of air the wine starts to show some raisiny/oxidative notes that weren't apparent on opening, so I'd think about drinking these now/soonish.
Very young showing - to young, actually, still very primary. The creaminess and lushness of the vintage shines through, it is open and nice, and while this does not have the complexity of a grand cru, it is still hitting the nerve, and the pinot-fruit is sing behind the somewhat polished facade. Wait a couple of years for this (of bottle well kept). With SP, LN et. al. at Formel B.
