The 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru is one of the most exciting wines in the Dujac cellar this year, offering up a classy bouquet of rose petal, orange rind and red berries framed by creamy new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and satiny with a pure and lively core of fruit, superb depth and persistence and juicy balancing acids. It's a supple but intense rendition of this tiny two-barrel cuvée.
