Domaine Dujac Vosne Romanee Premier Cru Beaux Monts 2006

"The Dujac 2006 Vosne-Romanee Beaux Monts is reflecting both the recently-acquired Molliard portion and the adjacent parcel that has belonged to Dujac for years ? displays a striking combination of bright berry fruit with plush, silken texture. High-toned distilled fruit esters; saline and chalky mineral suggestions; peppery, brown-spiced pungency; and deep, clean, marrowy meatiness all contribute to the complexity of the palate, and this finishes with clarity, cut, transparency, and invigoration, yet no suggestion of sharpness. The more somber, darkly woodsy, and cyanic side of the vintage and of Vosne are not entirely sublimated, which is a good thing, from the standpoint of complexity, and it is possible that they will become more prominent for a time. But this wine is riveting in part precisely because of that inherent contrast between darkness and high-toned light, as well as between the fruit and carnal and mineral characteristics inherent in Vosne."- Wine Spectator
