Drinking Tonight - 2009 Chambolle-Musigny, Dujac Fils & Pére

2009 Chambolle-Musigny, Dujac Fils & Pére
In 2000 Jeremy and Jacques of Domaine Dujac launched a negociant business that makes a Gevrey-Chambertin, a Morey Saint-Denis and in this case, a Chambolle-Musigny. They have established partnership with growers in these areas - no names mentioned! - and they make these wine with the same care and attention that of the Domaine Dujac bottlings.

The nose is really fine with a combination of a sturdy backbone and sweet, ripe, hedonistic Pinot fruit, in the shape of ripe red cherries, sunwarm rocks, violets and forest floor. Deep and refined. This I like. Still youngish. Lovely.
The taste is velvety yet firm with notes of ripe red currants, Asian spices, dried raspberries, violets amd a hint of tobacco. A long finish with a great acidity. A very fine mouthfeel. Gulpable but with stuffing for further greatness. This is a serious wine indeed.
