Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. There are discernable, quite potent stem-like scents on the nose of Dujac's Clos de la Roche: clearly some whole bunch here but it is not fully integrated at present. Still, there is admirable intensity and it remains fresh and interesting. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly coarse tannins on the entry. The acidity is well judged, although the saline finish feels a little astringent and green at the moment. This probably needs more time to harmonize and coalesce.
