2017 Dujac Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Gruenchers

Posted by Ian McFadden

Dujac's wines are emphatic in the impression that they leave, and this separates them from the pack.

The wines are ruthlessly intense and yet, ethereal, perfumed, and incredibly finessed. This is something that only the truly great producers achieve.

For me, the Chambolle 1er Cru Gruenchers has always served as the perfect illustration of Dujac's style. 

Dujac's Gruenchers is a fascinating wine. It combines the aromatics and silky elegance of Chambolle with a bold and piercing earthy minerality. Gruenchers is a wine of muscle and refinement. 

The 2017 is an incredibly pure example of Gruenchers. There's a seductive texture backed by an incisive minerality. The mid-palate is a dazzling presentation of spice, earth, floral notes, and snappy red fruits. 

Dujac is one of Burgundy's elite domaines. It's very rare that I'm able to offer Dujac's 1er Crus. To underscore the rarity, I'll mention that there are only two other listings in the country. I'm happy to have the opportunity to offer the 2017 Gruenchers, but expect a quick sell out.

Burghound: "A discreet application of wood sets off the cool aromas of mostly red berry fruit aromas that are cut with both floral and soft spice wisps. The sleek, delicious and vibrant flavors offer good minerality if not the density they usually do, all wrapped in a youthfully austere, focused and balanced finish. This is very Chambolle in character but it won't be the densest vintage of the Gruenchers that the domaine has ever produced."
