Good full red. Urgent fruit aromas of cherry, raspberry and strawberry complemented by sweet oak, cocoa power, lead pencil and minerals. Rich and very sweet on entry, then creamy in the middle, with great sappy palate-staining length to its red fruit, floral and spice flavors. For all its creaminess, this fruit bomb covers the entire palate and stays for a while.

Vanilla, star anise, forest floor, citrus oils, peat, and dark berry aromas rise kaleidoscopically from the glass of Dujac 2008 Romanee St.-Vivant, then deploy themselves with similar kinetic complexity on a palate of quite silken refinement. There's a resinous, toasty element from the barrel that I could do without, and Seysses notes that 'I am working on the toastingâ?� of the particular 350-liter barrels employed here (and demanded by the volume of this precious cru that his acreage and the vintage yielded). But that's almost a quibble in the context of a wine of such energy, underlying density, and sheer length as to suggest it will be worth following for a couple of decades.
