Other Reviews....
Soaring from the glass with aromas of raspberries, cherries and blood orange mingled with nuances of peony, raw cocoa, cinnamon and cedar wood, Dujac's 2017 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru is full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, its deep core of elegantly concentrated fruit framed by supple and powdery tannins and underpinned by succulent acids. Long, perfumed and defined, this was showing very well indeed from bottle.

Freshness and poise are often the hallmarks of Clos St-Denis, even in warmer vintages, and that's certainly the case here. Made with fruit from 1.45ha of the grand cru, it has 85% whole clusters and 70% new oak. The result is a wine of real verve and focus, showing engaging minerality and enticing perfume and length. Drinking Window 2025 - 2035.

The 2017 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru is more expressive aromatically than the Clos de la Roche at the moment. The terroir is slightly better articulated, notes of crushed stone perfectly infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is precise and focused, almost symmetrical in style, and very expressive. The long, gorgeous, almost tart finish belies the structure of this Grand Cru. Superb.

A strikingly floral nose of mostly red berry fruit and spice elements is more elegant if, somewhat surprisingly as it's not usually the case, less complex though that may change as this ages. The palate impression of the middle weight flavors is unusually supple and a bit light though the supporting tannins cause the youthfully austere finish to tighten up. The 2017 CSD is even more a wine of finesse than it typically is.
