Dujac Fils et Pere wines are a great way of getting a taste of a hilariously serious producer for less money than their grander stuff. There is definitely a place for such, dare I say it, more minor wines in the pantheon of brilliant loveliness and they are well-worth every penny. The more I try Dujac 2006s the more I love them, and I loved them quite a lot to start with.
Chambolle-Musigny 2006, Dujac Fils et Pere
This has a pure nose of refined fruit and lovely earthiness. Highly attractive for a village wine, love that slightly floral character. Hmmm… I often get something a bit floral from Dujac wines. There is a degree of complexity to this as well, which we like. The palate has a silky texture with smooth tannins and plenty of fruit. Good length. This is a pretty, attractive and accessible wine which should charm. OK, it may not set the world on fire, but you’d have to be pretty jaded not to smile when you smell and taste this. A keenly-priced treat.
