Tasting Notes

This is actually quite aromatically similar to the Clos de la Roche but a touch more elegant with its greater emphasis on spice and floral influences. There is excellent volume to the seductively textured, fleshy and succulent medium weight flavors that firm up immediately on the super-sleek and refined finish. This needs to develop more depth but there is so much underlying material, and the structure to complement it, that it should gradually develop. Like the Clos de la Roche, the tannins are very prominent, so patience is once again strongly suggested.

Dujac's 2018 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru is showing especially well, unwinding in the glass with scents of rose petals, sweet red berries, raw cocoa, spices and blood orange. Full-bodied, layered and lively, with an ample core of beautifully pure fruit and velvety structuring tannins, it's a concentrated but precise Clos Saint-Denis that's built for the long haul.

The 2018 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru is also showing beautifully, bursting with aromas of raspberries, red cherries, cassis and raw cocoa that are complemented by fragrant top notes of orange rind, rose petals and violets. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, lively and elegant, with finer-grained tannins than the more overtly muscular Clos de la Roche, but with similar dimension and mid-palate presence, concluding with a long and perfumed finish.
