Domaine Dujac Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru 2014
The 2014 vintage of Domaine Dujac's Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru displays the elegance and complexity that this revered terroir is known for. Aromas of red and black fruits, earthy undertones, and hints of spice and floral notes grace the nose. The palate is well-structured, with silky tannins and a beautiful balance between acidity and fruit. This wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for further development.
Vineyard notes - The Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru lies between the village of Morey-Saint-Denis to the south and Gevrey-Chambertin to the north, where the slope is very steep (13%). The plot varies in altitude from 284 to 309 meters. The lieu-dit faces east-southeast. The soil changes from east to west. The reddish-brown soil in the eastern part is 40 to 50 cm thick, with some angular-to-rounded limestone fragments. Upslope, in the western part of this Grand Cru plot, the soil is richer in fine angular limestone gravel. Two different substrata underlie the Clos Saint-Denis. To the east, the substratum is a fine light-colored limestone, occasionally containing flint-like chert nodules (chailles). This Premeaux limestone, crops out in beds tens of centimeters thick. To the west, where the slope is steeper, a thin layer of Comblanchien limestone scree in the form of fine angular gravel partly covers the slope.
