2018 Domaine Dujac Echezeaux Grand Cru Cote de Nuits
Winemaker Notes: Dujac’s holding is one block in the Champs Traversins vineyard which is situated at about 919 feet of elevation on an eastern facing slope. The vineyard features thin soils of sand and marl over hard rock. The vines have been organically farmed since 2001 and create an Echezeaux known for its delicate yet refined character. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Vinous - "The 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru had been racked the day prior to my visit. That said, the bouquet is very well defined, offering black cherries, raspberry, rosemary and pressed rose petal aromas that blossom with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannins, good depth and precision, revealing bitter cherry and a touch of balsamic toward the finish. Very good potential. Barrel Sample: 93-95"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Echezeaux Grand Cru is a promising cuvée in the making, mingling aromas of dark berry fruit, cassis and cherries with notions of burning embers, dried flowers and dark chocolate. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and ripely tannic, with a layered and nicely concentrated core, lively acids, and a well-defined finish. Barrel Sample: 92-94"
