Ratings & Tasting notes:

95 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The Dujac 2006 Clos de la Roche is a dark, brooding Pinot no less complex or long than its Clos St.-Denis sibling. Here, the animal side is a gamey, faintly sweaty beast; the fruits dark and as bitter as they are sweet; and the sense of chocolate-like richness remarkable in the context of the vintage. And rather than an energetic sense of interplay, this conveys a layering of fruit, meat, and stony, saline mineral elements, supported by tactile viscosity and a sappy sense of almost indelible cling. Lucky are those who can follow and compare both of these wines over the next dozen years. (DS) (12/2009)

93 points Allen Meadows – Burghound

Here there is terrific aromatic depth with a gorgeous mix of red and dark berry fruit, spice, earth, game, underbrush and a subtle minerality that can also be found on the rich, full, sweet and intense big-bodied flavors brimming with buckets of dry extract on the mouth coating, long, powerful and utterly stunning finish. This is a big 2006 yet the focus, balance and sense of harmony are riveting. (1/2009)

93 points Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

Good deep red-ruby. Musky, meaty nose is dominated today by chocolate and minerals; lower-pitched than the Clos-Saint-Denis. Fat and sweet in the mouth, with an almost liqueur-like ripeness and wonderful silky depth. Offers compelling sweetness if not quite the detail of the Clos-Saint-Denis. Finishes with a boatload of chewy, granular tannins. Not especially perfumed today but this has the size of a 2005. 93+ (ST) (3/2009)

Jancis Robinson

Very fresh nose. Real vitality here. Very complex and beautifully balanced. Although already quite broachable! Lots of rather majestic fruit underneath – so much so that it’s quite difficult to see any of the (nicely ripe) tannins at all. Long and haunting. 18/20 points (9/2009)
