Domaine Dujac Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru 2020 (For local pickup one day in advance!)

The 2020 Domaine Dujac Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru is a testament to the exceptional quality of this prestigious vineyard. A complex bouquet of ripe red and black fruits, floral notes, and earthy nuances is enriched by a hint of spice. The wine's beautifully structured palate is marked by silky tannins, balanced acidity, and a long, satisfying finish. This alluring Grand Cru can be appreciated now, but will also evolve gracefully with time in the cellar.

Vineyard notes

- The Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru lies between the village of Morey-Saint-Denis to the south and Gevrey-Chambertin to the north, where the slope is very steep (13%). The plot varies in altitude from 284 to 309 meters. The lieu-dit faces east-southeast. The soil changes from east to west. The reddish-brown soil in the eastern part is 40 to 50 cm thick, with some angular-to-rounded limestone fragments. Upslope, in the western part of this Grand Cru plot, the soil is richer in fine angular limestone gravel. Two different substrata underlie the Clos Saint-Denis. To the east, the substratum is a fine light-colored limestone, occasionally containing flint-like chert nodules (chailles). This Premeaux limestone, crops out in beds tens of centimeters thick. To the west, where the slope is steeper, a thin layer of Comblanchien limestone scree in the form of fine angular gravel partly covers the slope.
