Domaine Dujac Clos St Denis 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Morey Saint Denis|
"The 2020 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru has a slightly backward, tertiary bouquet that takes time to open in the glass. It eventually reveals blackberry, briary, sous-bois and hints of Earl Grey. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, quite spicy and pepper, this Clos Saint-Denis delivering a wonderful build towards its voluminous yet controlled, spicy finish. I must 'fess up - I swallowed my sample." Neal Martin Vinous Media 96-98 points Drink 2027-50
The 2020 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru is brilliant, unwinding to reveal beautifully pure aromas of cherries, red berries, rose petals, orange zest and vanilla pod. Full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a deep core of vibrant fruit, lively acids and a youthfully tightly wound profile, it concludes with a long, perfumed finish.
The 2020 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru was quite spectacular from barrel last year. Not in bottle, sure, it has closed up a little, yet there remains a brooding intensity, dark berry fruit, Earl Grey and mineral aromas eventually emerging. The palate is medium- bodied with fine tannins, grainy in texture, superb concentration and symmetry with a very long and detailed finish. Superb.
