Description

Consistently one of my favourite Dujac wines, this hails from a 1.15ha parcel in a well-surrounded premier cru. The 85% whole bunches certainly have an influence on the aromas and flavours of the wine, but they aren't excessively sappy and spicy. Attractive and nuanced, this is a wonderfully refined Gevrey. 94 points Decanter

The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Combottes 1er Cru, which was slightly affected by hail, albeit affecting the canopy rather than the bunches, has an appealing, pure, quite airy bouquet of raspberry, bilberry and blackberry, just a touch of brine/seaweed emerging with time in the glass. The palate is nicely focused with sappy red fruit, well-judged acidity, and orange peel and hints of brown spice on the finish. While not as persistent as the 2016, this has good potential and seems to gain depth with aeration. 92-94 points Neal Martin, Vinous

This too is really quite aromatically pretty with an elegant if noticeably wooded nose that offers up notes of red cherry, raspberry, lavender, violet and rose petal. As one would expect, there is better volume to the sleek and sophisticated medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent depth and persistence on the harmonious and Zen-like finale. Lovely stuff that is built to reward mid-term cellaring. 92 points - Allen Meadows, Burghound
