Domaine Dujac Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2014 (For local pickup one day in advance!)

The 2014 vintage is characterized by a captivating nose of dark berries, violets, and forest floor. The palate is both structured and refined, with ripe tannins and bright acidity offering balance and finesse, resulting in a wine that truly captures the essence of Clos de la Roche.

Vineyard notes

- The Clos de la Roche Grand Cru lies between the village of Morey-Saint-Denis to the south and Gevrey-Chambertin to the north, where the slope varies greatly, ranging from 4 to 23%. The plot ranges in altitude from 276 to 308 meters. The lieu-dit faces east. The soil changes from east to west. In the eastern part, the reddish-brown soil is about 40 to 50 cm thick, with many angular-to-blunt limestone fragments. Upslope, in the western part of the Grand Cru, the soil contains a great deal of angular limestone gravel. Two types of substratum underlie the Clos de la Roche Grand Cru. In the eastern part, fine-grained Premeaux limestone, light in color, with patches of flint-like chert nodules (chailles), crops out in beds tens of centimeters thick. In the western part, where the slope is steep, the bedded limestone scree (grèzes litées) lining the slope is composed of small angular Comblanchien limestone fragments.
