Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 1998, Domaine Dujac

Domaine Dujac own 15 hectares of top quality vineyards in the Côtes de Nuits. Back in the late 1990s I crossed tasting glasses with Jeremy Seysses who was slurping for Oxford University in the annual Varsity Blind Wine-Tasting competition and has now joined his father Jacques at the domaine. This 1998 Clos de la Roche starts with cassis, soft, rounded, red berries. Rich strawberries, evolves to cooked plums and black cherries. Still fresh. A full wine, very good. No mysticism though.
