Domaine Dujac Clos de la Roche 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Morey Saint Denis|
"The 2020 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru is no less impressive. Exhibiting aromas of plums, red berries and cassis mingled with orange rind, cinnamon, vanilla pod and spices, it's full-bodied, deep and layered, with a concentrated core of fruit, lively acids and a long, rose-inflected finish." William Kelley Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95-97 points Drink 2027-48
Unwinding in the glass with aromas of cassis, dark berries and plums mingled with spices, sweet soils tones, vine smoke and petals, Dujac's 2020 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru is full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a pure, vibrant core of fruit that's framed by powdery tannins and lively acids. Serious and structured, though it's far from austere, this will richly reward patience.
The 2020 Clos-de-la-Roche Grand Cru is more reduced on the nose, slightly darker fruit than the Clos Saint-Denis; hints of kirsch and orange rind emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, a "stout" Grand Cru, solid with blackberry laced with graphite towards the finish. I can see this closing down for a few years so have a cellar handy.
