Charmes Chambertin Dujac 93-94 Jg 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2014 Charmes-Chambertin was also late finishing up its malo, and unlike the Echézeaux, it was not all that happy about being tasted. This wine had not yet absorbed all its new wood and was showing a bit chewy, but all the constituent components are in place for this wine to snap into place with a bit more elevage. The nose is a promising blend of black cherries, cassis, grilled meat, espresso, dark soil tones and spicy new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and rock solid at the core, with fine focus and soil signature, ripe tannins and a long, chewy and adolescent finish...93-94+" John Gilman, View from the Cellar, Issue #60 "Bright ruby-red. Wild, musky aromas of black raspberry and truffley underbrush lifted by a perfumed floral quality. Dense, juicy and tactile on the palate; distinctly spherical in texture, showing a sexy sweetness to its raspberry and smoke flavors. There are plenty of tannins here for structure but they arrive late, allowing the sweet fruit to linger...90-93" Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media 01/16
