Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru – Wine Advocate – 90-92 Points
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 it’s one of my favourites from Dujac. Perhaps it was just toying with me and will rise phoenix-like in bottle?
