Domaine Dujac, Charmes Chambertin 1996

The Charmes Chambertin 1996 from Domaine Dujac is a lovely wine – but somewhat atypical for the vintage. The bouquet offer matured almost organic red fruits – strawberries, raspberries and red current – with a serious dose of sous-bois. On the palate quite rich red fruit with a good midpalate concentration and length – quite soft and bit fragile for the vintage – i.e. none of the rustic and slighly austere notes found in many 1996 red Burgundies. A fine and lovely wine – but be aware of deposits in the bottle – need proper handling and decanting.
