More Vintages and Sizes of Dujac - Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Combottes 1er Cru:
Issue: Issue 1
As is often the case, Combottes resembles a lesser Latricières and this wine is cut from that cloth with its elegant red raspberry fruit and prominent minerality. There is not a lot of density here but the finesse, elegance and length are of grand cru caliber. It is wines such as this that raise the question as to whether Aux Combottes should be considered for grand cru status.

($115) Medium red. Expressive aromas of redcurrant, plum, meat, iron and tobacco. Dense, sweet and pliant, with lovely, layered red fruit, leather and tobacco flavors. Finishes with substantial, thoroughly ripe, tongue-dusting tannins.

The ruby-colored 1999 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Combottes exhibits a sweet, perfumed, red fruit-scented nose. It has an excellent depth of red and black cherries in its medium-bodied, supple-textured personality. This wine has excellent to outstanding grip, density of fruit, and balance. Its long finish reveals copious amounts of ripe tannins that should melt away with cellaring.
