External Reviews for Domaine Dujac
Intensely smoky, and with concentrated black cherry, herb, and brown spice aromas, the Dujac 2005 Clos St.-Denis comes onto the palate quite firm, palpably dense, its structural rectitude, fruit pit notes, stony mineral shadings, and abundant fine tannins all somewhat alleviated by ample glycerin and complemented by the sheer sappy juiciness of its ripe black fruits. This is positively fetal when compared with the Clos de la Roche, but exhibits no less remarkable sheer length. Certainly we're looking at another wine with more than a decade's developmental potential.
While slightly reductive, the 2003 Clos St.-Denis admirably displays its enormous concentration and depth of fruit. Copious quantities of dark berries are intermingled with notes of herbs, licorice, and red cherries in its complex, and lengthy character. Projected maturity: 2008andndash;2017.
Good full, deep red. Musky, decadent aromas of red fruits, flowers, truffle and sweet oak. Concentrated, superripe and broad, with atypical weight for this cuvandeacute;e. Rather firm and unforthcoming today. Very horizontal on the finish, with fine tannins coating the palate.
Good deep red. Wild, musky, reduced nose showed cherry and sandalwood with aeration. Supple, silky and deep, with sweet red fruit flavors. Perhaps atypically rich and large-scaled for this grand cru. Finishes impressively long and sweetly oaky. The team planned to rack this wine shortly after my visit and add back some of the cleanest lees.
Bright red-ruby. Knockout nose offers a compelling perfume of black cherry, Oriental spices and minerals. Then juicy and imploded, with compelling sweetness and precision of flavor and superb inner-mouth energy. Explosively juicy and penetrating on the finish, which features firm-edged tannins and superb lift and length. This vineyard does especially well in tannic years, said Seysses, noting that 1995 and 1996 were also great vintages for this wine.
