2017 Dujac Fils et Pere Nuits St. Georges Aux Cras [JG92]
John Gilman, 92 Points
"The inaugural release of Nuits St. Georges “aux Cras” from Dujac Fils et Père is very good indeed. Jeremy Seysses is not certain of the exact age of the vines here, but notes “that they are certainly older than fifty years of age.” There are seven piéces of Cras in the cellars this year, so this wine will have some availability and will certainly be quite rewarding for those intrepid enough to search out a Dujac Nuits St. Georges premier cru. The bouquet is lovely, wafting from the glass in a fine blend of red and black cherries, nutskin, gamebird, coffee, woodsmoke, a fine base of chalky soil tones and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and quite refined structurally (particularly for young Nuits), with a fine core of fruit, lovely transparency, fine-grained tannins and good bounce and grip on the long and vibrant finish. Fine juice. 2025- 2065"
