More Vintages and Sizes of Dujac - Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Combottes 1er Cru:
Author: Allen Meadows
Issue: Issue 25
A wonderfully expressive and high-toned nose of cool red berry fruits and hints of spice, earth and minerals serve to introduce sweet and impeccably well-balanced flavors that are sweet, delicious, rich, detailed and altogether serious, packing good punch and energy into a finish that is all grace and harmony. This is a really lovely effort that will age well yet be accessible early on.

($196) Good deep, bright red. Liqueur-like aromas of maraschino cherry, mint and soy sauce. Suave on entry, then tangy in the middle palate, offering complex flavors of red fruits, spices and mint. Finishes with a serious tannic spine that gives this wine a youthful austerity. I find a captivating savory character reminiscent of mushroom umami from the nose straight through to the aftertaste. Lay this one down for at least six or seven years.

Pale rim, scented and delicate for a Gevrey ? but such direct fruit flavours! Only then does the structure start to insinuate itself and demonstrate that in fact it offers a bit of a corset ? even slightly inky on the finish.

The 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Combottes offers intense, bitter-sweet cherry aromatics reminiscent of this year's Morey 1er Cru, but they are backed by licorice, roasted meat and woody, resinous notes. Full and rich in initial impression on the palate, it displays a rather austere and faintly woody, though undeniably serious and long finish today. Could this simply need more time to recover from bottling?
