Average critic rating : 89.0 points



Very elegant red and black fruits but the barely medium weight flavors are quite light. While the '96 Clos St. Denis is certainly very pretty, this is more about grand cru finesse but premier cru weight. In short, very good but not better. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Aug, 1998



This bright ruby-colored wine exhibits raspberries, violets, porcini mushrooms, and black cherries on the nose. Extremely well-balanced, this wine is oily-textured, rich, medium-to-full-bodied, and offers a gorgeous mouthful of sweet cherries, earth, and metallic flavors that linger on the finish amidst traces of lightly charred oak. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2006. My visit to the Domaine Dujac was perplexing. Jacques Seysses, the estate's owner and director, informed me that the 1996 vintage was defined by its low acidity. This statement was shocking to hear as I had already been tasting the vintage's wines for a few weeks (I had started at the southern extremity of the Cote d'Or and was working my way north) and everybody I had visited had expressed the contrary. Pierre Rovani-Wine Advocate # 118 Aug 1998
