The 2016 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru really delivers on the nose. It is just as ebullient in bottle as it showed in barrel with vivacious red cherries, crushed strawberry and mineral scents. A subtle touch of pressed rose petals emerges with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine structure that grips the mouth, quite dense with a mixture of red and black fruit laced with tobacco and a light marine/saline note that becomes more accentuated with time. Superb. Tasted at Flint Wines Domaine Dujac tasting in London.
95 Allen Meadows, Burghound (January 2019)
In the same fashion as the Echézeaux the whole cluster vinification is evident with the notably prominent spice and floral elements that add breadth to the cool and ultra-pure aromas of red currant, cherry and discreet wood nuances. The delicious and strikingly refined medium weight flavors possess flat-out great intensity on the saline and hugely long finish. This is a CSD of focused power and refinement.
