Domaine Dujac Clos St Denis 2011


SKU 03765


Not long after purchasing vineyards in the late 1960s and releasing his first wines in the early 1970s Jacques Seysses became an international icon. His ability to coax the utmost flavor and texture from his grapes set him apart from his Burgundian brethren. Jacques respect for the terroir of the Côte d'Or is still on display in his viticultural practices and innovative winemaking methods. Dujac wines are more than just varietally correct - they are intimate travelogues of some of the most celebrated sites on earth.

Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. There are some herbaceous notes on the nose of Dujac's 2011 Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru, although like its peers, it is fresh and vigorous with a mixture of red and black, rather tertiary fruit intermingling with tobacco and autumn leaves. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity. The tannins err more toward the dry side, although there is sufficient fruit here to repay another year or two in bottle. This seems lighter than the other premier cru and yet there is still appreciable vitality and vigor manifested in a feminine style.
