DOMAINE DUJAC CLOS SAINT-DENIS GRAND CRU
The 2014 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru has a very refined bouquet with black cherries, boysenberry, a touch of graphite and a touch of sous-bois. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp acidity, chalky tannin, very tight at the moment, much more saline than the Echézeaux with a brisk finish that just needs to flesh out. This was the one Grand Cru that did not quite meet my expectations, a surprise as its one of my favourites from Dujac. Perhaps it was just toying with me and will rise phoenix-like in bottle ?
Drink in 2018-2030.
Rating 90-92 ?
Reviewer Neal Martin eRobertparker.com
(from a 1.48 ha parcel). A completely different aromatic profile is present here with its notably more elegant and expressive nose of various floral elements that include lavender and rose petal along with various spice and red berry fruit scents. There is a terrific sense of underlying tension to the precise, racy and focused middle weight flavors that are notably finer than those of the Clos de la Roche but at the cost of being notably less powerful. I very much like the superb persistence and fine balance and even though the tannins are quite fine they are also notably dense and as such this too is absolutely going to require plenty of patience.
