(mostly destemmed and aged in about 80% new oak; Magnien noted that this vintage was aged in Domaine Dujac's cellar): Very fresh medium red. Reticent but remarkably lively aromas of red berries, smoky minerality and clove. Fat, rich, plush and full, showing good energy but much more oaky than today's Michel Magnien's wines, with the wood element more obvious than precision of terroir. Finishes with broad, dusty, well-integrated tannins. This rather full wine is not the last word in complexity but is impressive nevertheless. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, March 2018)
