Domaine Dujac Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2017 (For local pickup one day in advance!)

This 2017 wine showcases an enticing nose of red cherries, blackberries, and earthy undertones. Its medium-bodied palate features elegant tannins, well-integrated acidity, and a persistent finish, reflecting the classic refinement of the Clos de la Roche terroir.

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.
