2007Dujac - Vosne-Romanée Les MalconsortsRed Burg Pre-Arrv Fall 09'$1603  TZ-91-93 /JG -94
JG -Having been a long-time and quite devout fan of the Dujac Gruenchers, I hate to admit that my heart has been stolen by the Malconsorts here, but this is an amazingly beautiful bottle of premier cru. The nose on the 2007 is flat out brilliant, as it soars from the glass in a blaze of pure cherries, raspberries, orange zest, coffee, duck, great minerality and spicy wood. On the palate the wine is fullish, long and very pure, with great soil inflection, plenty of spice, tangy acids, fine-grained tannins and a very long and sappy backend that closes with a note of chocolate. A great wine. 2016-2040. 94
