dujac morey saint-denis 1999
1999 Dujac, Morey Saint-Denistry to find this wine...
Medium-plus ruby-red colour. The nose is brown-sugar sweet with quite some understated density, very subtle stems and eventually a mix of black cherry and a last note of redcurrant. The palate is very well textured with fine grained tannin offsetting dense fruit and very good acidity. The only negative today is a little oak-driven bitterness on the finish. This is showing as a very young wine – much younger and denser than the 1995 at the same stage of evolution (or perhaps better to say age) – I wouldn’t open another for 3-5 years. Perhaps it’s time to dig out another 95…
Rebuy – Yes

    Bill, thanks for the notes. Wondering if you could comment on the 2000 vintage of this wine? Do you think it would be earlier drinking than the 1999?

    Hi Chris it’s a while since I tasted the 2000, but from my vague memory, I’d say that the 99 is a more structured wine with a tighter core of concentration. I’m pretty sure I’d drink the 00 sooner, though given that a vintage like 99 (from Dujac) will comfortably last and improve over 20 years, I don’t expect that 00 to be ready yet…
    Cheers, Bill

    Ok Bill, thanks for the clarification. One to put away for a few years then.

    FWIW, the 88 was drinking REALLY well a couple of years ago.
    This wine can be one of the best Village wines in Burgundy from my experience – the 96 was stunning juice.

    My experience of the 85 about 3-4 years ago mirrors that of Kent’s 88. This cuvée often really blossoms at 15+ years…
