2018 Domaine Dujac Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru
The 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru unwinds in the glass with aromas of sweet cherries and red berries mingled with nuances of rose petals, orange rind, cinnamon and forest floor. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, muscular and structured, with lively acids, fine concentration and a youthfully chalky finish.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2020)
The 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru comes from Ruchots, Sorbets, Millandes and Charrières. It has a clean, precise bouquet of mineral-rich black fruit that is vivid and bright. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins and a fine bead of acidity. A little compact at the moment; the aftertaste needs more persistence to complete this Premier Cru.
Neal Martin - Vinous
A deft touch of wood sets off a blend of floral and earth-inflected dark berry fruit-suffused nose. The supple yet nicely detailed medium weight flavors also culminate in a grippy, firm and austere finish that isn't short but neither is it especially persistent. It's possible that the somewhat coarse tannins may well harmonize in time but my sense is that they're likely to remain prominent and not completely integrated.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
Rich dense purple with a fresh mulberry nose, sweet ripe fruit swamps the palate, just a touch of dry tannins at the finish, pretty sensual yet with some sternness of structure. Perhaps this needs a little longer to settle down, but on today’s showing I slightly prefer the village Morey.
