dujacgevrey.jpg2006 Dujac Fils & Fere Gevrey-Chambertin Red Burgundy.
This Gevrey is bigger and firmer than the Domaine Morey with an earthier and sexier edge to it, and though it is not as delicate it does have impressive depth and pureness. The nose is truffle, wild flowers, smoky sweet oak spices, cedar and game with a lush and vibrant palate of cherry, plum and blueberry fruit with baking spice, mineral notes, clove and vanilla in the background. This is a rich and intense Burgundy, but opens to reveal rose petals and freshness when given air, changing and intriguing with every sip. This wine is a great value for what you get, especially in its class, for a fine Burgundy.
