There was nothing in this bottle that made me want to modify my tasting note from Issue 13, except perhaps to suggest delaying the initial drinking window estimate by two more years. Otherwise, I simply repeat the in-bottle note here: Structurally similar but this is even more aromatically complex with more of a compelling mix of red and black fruits and a stunningly precise and pure flavor profile of abundant mineral notes and a chalky, slightly dusty finish. There is a really lovely mouth feel as the flavors are velvety and mouth coating. As good a Dujac Clos St. Denis as I can remember since perhaps the unmatched '78.

The 2001 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru from Domaine Dujac is superb, wafting from the glass with a pretty bouquet of cherry, strawberry, rose petal and hints of espresso and raw cocoa. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, elegant and quite expansive with nice depth, an ample chassis of fine-grained tannins and deceptive length, its structural elements asserting themselves in the form of subtle grip on the finish. A great success that blossoms beautifully with air. 2018 - 2028
