TN: 2005 Domaine Dujac Morey St. Denis (France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Morey St. Denis)

2005 Domaine Dujac Morey St. Denis - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Morey St. Denis (4/16/2013)
Popped this based on some reports of 2005 village level wines starting to open. The noise smells of a mix of dark fruits and cherry liquor with a hint of earth. The palate is generous with sweet fruit, substantial but not overwhelming tannins and acidity. The texture and weight is certainly that of a 1er cru. Okay to drink now but should mature into something even more impressive with time.

Update: 48 hours later, this becomes a complete wine. Tannins resolve, nose opens up to include spice, and the palate becomes rich, sweet, and wonderful. Hard to describe except that it is just really delicious.

Thanks for the reminder Fred - I think I should pop a 95 this weekend…

Just opened a 2005 Fourrier Gevrey Village Vieille Vigne now. Its drinking beautifully now. Very harmonious. Settled.

I needed to compare that to the 2006 Fourrier Gevrey village I had last week. 2006 was a bit more red fruited and had nervous energy.

Looking forward to your note. I drank what little 2000 and 2001 I could get my hands on last year. Both wonderful.
