Boundary Breaker : 2014 Dujac Morey St. Denis

Posted by Ian McFadden

Simply put, Dujac is astounding.

One of the things about the domaine that I like the most is that Dujac's magic respects no boundaries.

They make epic Grand Cru Red Burgundies, shockingly good whites and as today's offer drives home, village-level wines that punch well above their weight class. I can think of few domaines where every bottle seems to transcend expectations by such a wide margin.

The Morey St. Denis always shocks me. It delivers so much for a village wine. I've had numerous bottles with a decade or more of age that have really impressed me. The way that the Morey ages is a real testament to the amount of punch and how rigorous the structure is.

Dujac's signature is an intensity and saturating complexity. Yet there's an ethereal dimension that's simply haunting - the perfume and whispering complexity of Dujac's wines separate them from the pack.

The 2014 vintage really flaunts Dujac's earthy and textural elements. The Morey has an explosive cast of aromatics and energetic lift. There's a dazzling array of the red fruits, spice, minerals, earth, and floral notes.

Dujac's wines function at a very elite level and you don't have to look any further than the Morey. Few village wines deliver a similar refinement and complexity. Think of examples from Mugneret-Gibourg, Fourrier, Roumier, etc. Just like the others, Dujac's Morey is never around in large quantities and always disappears quickly.
