nose - dark cherry, earth, molasses, Asian spice mouth - deceptively powerful given its light color. a complex cornucopia of red and dark fruits, with umami presence, and slightly stemmy , coming through to me as celery. With time in glass I could also perceive a touch of funk. Tasted alongside a 2006 Mugnier Amoureuses, and while that wine had amazing purity, this wine had power, spice, and complexity, and (probably) hints at what its neighboring vineyards would taste like.
Tasted blind with friends, no formal TN. Next to the Vosne village by D. Clark this showed clearly more complexity, both on the nose and the palate. Spicier, earthier and with some beef stock too. Intense and structured on the palate, with perceivable tannins, but it did seem to lack acidity next to the village. Interesting to see how this will evolve in some years.

Those of you who’ve followed the elevage of Dujac’s 2008 portfolio already know what I'm about to say: this is a world-beating set of wines that is probably the finest ever produced at this storied address. Across the board, the wines are at a level normally reserved for only a (small) handful of the most elite producers of Burgundy – including DRC and Leroy.
The prices are high but compared to the current Bordeaux madness or other collectable Burgundy of this ilk, they are within reason (you’ll have to check pricing on the 2007s for many of these as they are so limited in 2008, no listings exist). It’s tough to pick favorites but a general rule is that you will not be disappointed with any of them:
(Please note: magnums are available of most wines, they are slightly more than double the price of the 750mls - please inquire)
