dujac 1995 morey saint denis

dujac-1995-msd

After the Pousse d’Or failure – I’m glad I persevered with this vintage…

1995 Dujac, Morey St.Denis
Medium rusty-red. The nose is a blend of stemmy perfume – and at this age it really is perfume – and a higher-toned fresh plum fruit that flirts with a floral dimension; it’s quite lovely and keeps drawing me back for another sniff as the fruit changes to cherry and even recurrant with time. In the mouth it doesn’t quite have that melt-in-the-mouth texture that you get with a perfectly matured wine, but there’s freshness and a structure that remains bright, indeed almost stern. The acidity is just about perfect, being the baseline for a beautifully understated but fine finish. Such a shame that I have only three or four more of these.
Rebuy – Yes

    The 1995s seem to be coming out of their shells. I had a Chevillon Les Saint-Georges on Friday evening that is drinking quite well although it is still on the upswing.

    Hmmm. Interesting, not at all the experience I had with a 1995 Dujac MSD last spring. I hope Claude is right.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
