A long-time client of Iron Gate, this consignor first became interested in wine when he attended a Wine Spectator’s tasting, and someone opened a 1988 Tignanello. The bouquet and palate were an amazing shock to his senses. He began collecting fine wine in 2008 and built his cellar shortly after that. Wines were purchased through the LCBO and SAQ and stored in a temperature and humidity-controlled cellar.
The wine in this lot has a score of 92-94 from Robert Parker and the following tasting note -Aromas of crisp nashi pear, white flowers, pastry cream and apricot preface the 2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes, a medium to full-bodied wine that's more muscular and concentrated than this year's Folatières, with lively acids and a mouthwatering finish. The 2019 vintage is a terrific success for Domaine Dujac. Perfumed, concentrated and vibrant, with beautifully refined tannins and bright fruit tones despite the warmth and sunshine of the vintage, I'd be happy to own any or all of the cuvées reviewed here. The 2018s, revisited in bottle, have also lived up to my high expectations- More overtly muscular and structured than the 2019s, these are serious wines built for the cellar, but their potential is evident and anyone opening bottles 20 or 30 years from now will be delighted to own them. Of course, readers will be familiar with the outlines of the Dujac approach to producing red Burgundy- organic farming, fermentation in (for the most part) concrete vats with a predominance of whole clusters and élevage in barrels largely sourced from Tonnellerie Rémond. Since Jeremy Seysses took the reins from father Jacques in 2001, there have been evolutions- Inspired by Christophe Roumier, Jeremy seeks to retard malolactic fermentation, he's tried retaining more lees, and there were experiments with leaving the wines unracked throughout their élevage. In the last handful of years, everything appears to have fallen into place in what might be called the contemporary Dujac style, and the few vintages have been, to my palate, especially successful.
