Tasting Notes

**Note: from a 1.16 ha parcel**
This is also notably airy, cool and almost as elegant with its intensely floral nose that is composed by notes of restrained red pinot fruit, earth and tea scents that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The racy, intense and beautifully precise medium weight flavors that deliver excellent depth and persistence. Again this is not super dense but this certainly doesn't lack for intensity or refinement. Plus it should generously reward mid-term cellaring.

Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, Dujac's 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru aux Combottes obviously has a lot of whole-bunch fruit, and the stems protrude too much, defining the character of this wine rather than the terroir or fruit. The palate is very stemmy from the start, quite hard and certainly uncompromising, and I wonder if it has sufficient fruit to see it through? It is a wine that could go either way at this point, although I remain optimistic as it did improve in the glass, that stemmy note receding and replaced by an attractive spiciness. Not quite as compelling as the superb Morey-Saint-Denis premier cru at the moment but still a fine wine. Tasted September 2017. Drink Date 2019 - 2035

Bright, dark red. Sexy but reticent nose hints at black cherry, raspberry and leather. Then sweet, pliant and seriously concentrated on the palate, communicating sappy energy to the flavors of red and dark berries and spices. The dark-fruit finish features chewy tannins and excellent length.
