It is really not difficult to write, to post. However, to do it consistently for years, that’s different….
Having absent for a couple of years, drinking lesser and more thematic specific, I thought it might be a good idea to do it once again. Hopefully I wont give up after this one, LOL.
Domaine Dujac, one of my absolute favourites and to me, a 1st tier Domaine. (DRC & LEROY are, Super 0 – Zero tier XD). I love the style here: true to the terroir with amazing vibrancy and purity. Excellent depth and mid palate sap and at the same time weightless. Whole Bunches and new oak are expertly judged and well-integrated. I’m fortunate to drink many of his wines, from Village – Grand Crus, different vintages. (Will follow-up with all the notes that I have).
Domaine Dujac has an impressive range of vineyards, all at the prime sites:
37% Grand Crus (wow!) 34% 1er Cru, 28% Village out of 15.22ha. <- Envious…

2014 DOMAINE DUJAC MOREY SAINT DENIS ROUGE
Glass: Burgundy – Lucaris Tokyo Temptation & Schott-Zwiesel the First
p/s: Glasses made a huge different, will try to test with Zalto / Riedel / Gabriel with the same wine.
On Lucaris: Light perfume from whole bunches and red fruits. Good depth, strength and length on the palate but not much flavours.
On Zwiesel: More complex aromas of meatiness, red and blue fruits, light spice and stem. It has better detail and juicy acidity on the palate. A stream of spring water tailing at the very good finish. Excellent for its level and still very affordable.
On Zwiesel: Perfect stage. This has all the factors that I love about Burgundy: Purity, decent complexity, seductive fruits and juicy acidity. Touch of mocha at the back and loaded with mouth-watering minerality.
Day 3: Still drinking very well but light VA showing.
A super village that punches above its level. No doubt will continue to improve with bottle aged. The 2001 is matured and still full of life.
