Robert Parker 93-96
The 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru is one of the most exciting wines in the Dujac cellar this year, offering up a classy bouquet of rose petal, orange rind and red berries framed by creamy new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and satiny with a pure and lively core of fruit, superb depth and persistence and juicy balancing acids. It’s a supple but intense rendition of this tiny two-barrel cuvée.

(Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Dujac, Red) Medium deep purple. The nose is sombre, deep and backward. This has a huge wealth of fruit on the palate, especially at the front, very primary fruit. It does extend through very nicely but the second half of the palate is yet to fill out, as I think it will.
(Domaine Dujac Chambertin Grand Cru Red) A reticent if beautifully complex nose blends notes of various spice nuances with those of floral, red currant, plum and a hint of black cherry. The sleek, intense and wonderfully textured broad-shouldered flavors possess outstanding drive and power on the stony, austere and serious finish that possesses stunningly good depth and persistence. Like the Bonnes Mares though, this will mature very slowly.
