Right up there with the very best wines of the vintage in 2018, this is a beautifully refined expression of the domaine's St Denis, extending to 1.17ha of this finest of Grands Crus. Everything about this wine is in the right place, with subtle 75% whole bunches, polished, nuanced tannins, thrilling minerality, fine, floral red berry sweetness and lingering minerality. The sort of thing every Pinot lover should cherish. (TA)
The 2018 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru is also showing beautifully, bursting with aromas of raspberries, red cherries, cassis and raw cocoa that are complemented by fragrant top notes of orange rind, rose petals and violets. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, lively and elegant, with finer-grained tannins than the more overtly muscular Clos de la Roche, but with similar dimension and mid-palate presence, concluding with a long and perfumed finish.

The 2018 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru has a wonderful bouquet of blackberry, wild strawberry, crushed rocks/sandstone and touches of dried blood. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, brown spices and a slight charcoal-like note. Moderate depth, quite masculine in style, a little austerity on the finish... but that is what you want from a Clos Saint-Denis. (NM)
The 2018 Clos St. Denis here is every bit as magical as the Clos de la Roche. The spicy and red fruity bouquet is already very expressive, offering up a deep, pure and sappy constellation of red plums, cherries, raspberries, strawberries, a complex base of soil, cocoa powder, fresh nutmeg and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is elegant, full-bodied and very transparent, with a sappy core, great focus and grip, ripe, buried tannins and a very, very long, soil-driven and tangy finish. This is brilliant and maybe my favorite wine in the Dujac cellars this year (though I did not taste the RSV).
This is actually quite aromatically similar to the Clos de la Roche but with even more spice and a bit more floral influence as well. There is excellent volume to the seductively textured, fleshy and succulent medium weight flavors that firm up immediately on the firm and serious but slightly better balanced finale. Patience is once again strongly suggested.
