(from the sub-climat Champs Traversin) Moderate reduction makes the nose difficult to read beyond ripe black fruit aromas that continue onto the silky and seductively round and velvety flavors that are more forward and accessible than either the Charmes or the Clos St. Denis. I like the concentration and length here though it's clear that this is in an awkward state today so it's possible that there is more here than it seems. In short, admirable if not sensational quality but not at the level of the best here.

($232) Good full, deep red. Musky, reticent aromas of redcurrant, raspberry and meat. Then densely packed and tightly knit, with juicy flavors of redcurrant, leather and game. Today the wine's firm tannins have the upper hand over its fruit. Lay this one down.

I'm pretty certain this is a domaine wine. This wine was being bottled early. Already full, round and succulent but without ingredient X to suggest it had a miraculously long life ahead of it. Rich, noble and quite fine-textured but curiously supple for a Grand Cru at this stage.

From their single parcel on the Vougeot side of the appellation, the Dujac 2005 Echezeaux leads with aromas of smoked meat, brine and jellied black raspberry. Impressively rich and decidedly sweet and liqueur-like on the palate, it reflects the low yields and relative surmaturite that Alec Seysses says characterized this parcel in 2005. Beneath the superficially impressive folds of fruit, there is smoky, meaty, subtly chalky depth of flavor and ample, fine-grained tannic structure.
