Domaine Dujac Clos de La Roche Grand Cru 1999

Allen Meadows: Much to my surprise given the large format bottling, this was really quite aromatically expressive with really lovely depth to the mostly red and blue berry fruit that is just now beginning to evidence the first hints of secondary development along with ample amounts of earth, game and a smoky hint. The delicious and muscular medium weight plus flavors display ample minerality that continues onto the velvety and mouth coating finish that seems to go on and on. The tannins are still relatively firm and in mag format, this may need another 10 years to really arrive at its full maturity but I have shortened the drinking window slightly because the wine could be enjoyed now as there is sufficient mid-palate fat. Note further that I have raised my score slightly as this really is extremely impressive. 95 points
