Maison Dujac Fils et Pere Gevrey Chambertin 2006

The Burghound note for this wine was not terribly useful, as apparently the wine was suffering ‘strong reduction’ (noted in a January 2008 tasting). I am not sure how Allen makes judgements under these conditions, but I suppose he’s tasted soooo many wines he has a reasonable idea of where the wine will head. I like the nose: sexy red fruits and sappy notes with some stalk. The palate showed a lovely transparency of fruit, with red cherries and tomato flesh, finishing with a tangy twang. Nothing green despite the reference to stalk and tomato. A style of wine that I am coming to enjoy a lot. I have a few of the 1er cru Dujacs from 2006, and I look forward to them. Anyway, this wine is not what I would call generous at the moment, but it is showing some fruit weight without heaviness, and quite a bit of acid to be honest too. Better with food. Pretty much unchanged overnight, perhaps losing some fruit. 87 points. Drink 2013-2018.

    Forgive me
    Is this the non estate wine?
    I have had reds in this range that are good value…..

    Yeah, non-estate I believe. This one was average “value” imo

    And here is the Burgundy rub. $50 to $100 – 87 points. The Wither Hills – sub $20 and 86 points. Thats a lot of bucks for that last point.
    Yes yes yes, I hear all the Burgundy botherers telling me that’s oversimplifying things and checking their old 100 point wounds haven’t accidentally reopened. But I’m just sayin’…

    Yarp. Know what you mean. Doesn’t stop me buying them though :blush:

  5. I didn’t really like what happened at Dujac in 06. Michel and I went there and I thought it was a shiraz tasting or maybe Barolo 😉 I hear much better things from 07 onwards.

    Nothing Shiraz about this wine…. you were probably trying the 1er and GC wines!
