Description

Dujac's single 0.23ha parcel in the lower part of Les Champs Traversins is one of their younger vineyards, having been planted in the early 1980s. With 90% whole bunches and 70% new oak, this is an intensely floral, spicy, perfumed number with violet top-notes, chalky minerality and a tapering, refreshing finish. A classy grand cru bottling. 96 points - Decanter

The 2017 Echezeaux Grand Cru is also showing very well, having gained in depth and precision in the year since I last tasted it. Opening in the glass with aromas of red berries, cherries, orange rind, sweet soil tones, spices and peonies, it's medium to full-bodied, with a broader, more textural attack than the Malconsorts, underpinned by similarly powdery tannins and lively acids. This looks to be a longer-haul proposition than I had imagined, and at least a modicum of patience will be in order. 94 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
