The ripe red and earthy dark berry fruit aromas precede appealingly full flavors that are sweet, round, and rich with a delicious, complex and moderately structured finale. There is excellent volume here for its level and the finish is an interesting contrast with its velvety yet robust texture. Fine quality here.

Bright, deep red-ruby. Briary black raspberry, smoke and mocha on the musky nose. Dense, musky and sweet, with a hint of malic acidity giving an edge to the black raspberry, mineral and chocolate flavors. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins. This cuvee got a total of just two pigeages, as the fruit needed a gentle extraction owing to some drought stress, according to Jeremy Seysses.

The Domaine Dujac 2005 Morey-St.-Denis - incorporating the Les Porroux vineyard around the winery - soars from the glass with odors of incense, bitter-sweet black cherry, musky florality, a Chartreuse-like aura of herbal distillates, and wood smoke pungency. In the mouth, the black cherry and cassis fruit runs really deep, persistently wreathed in herbs and flowers, with satisfying hints of fruit skin bitterness and bitter chocolate and herb low tones. Already the texture is silken. The finish - while not overly candified in character - reminds me of sucking on fruit and herbal lozenges whose bittersweet residues cling tenaciously to the palate. How much better quality can one ask of a village wine?

Full of fresh blackberry and plum notes, this firmly structured red is straightforward, gushing with ripe black fruit. The tannins are dominant on the finish, but what fruit. Needs time.

About This Producer


Jacques Seysses began his career as a winemaker in 1965 as an intern of Gerard Potel at Pousse d'Or. The experience paid off as he gleaned valuable information from the great Burgundian winemakers of the time. In 1967, he struck out on his own with the purchase of Domaine Graillet in Morey St Denis, which he renamed Domaine Dujac. The first vintage, in 1968, proved a complete disaster, but Jacques rebounded quickly, producing one of Burgundy's best wines in 1969. As the domaine gained recognition, the estate and its production grew. Today Dujac stretches over 12 hectares of prime Burgundy real estate in eleven appellations, including eight Grand Cru holdings, and turns out just under 5,000 cases a year.

The winemaking philosophy at Dujac is open-minded, experimental, and successful. A true family affair, winemaking is directed by Jacques and son Jeremy, and Jeremy's wife Diana, an oenologist trained at UC Davis, manages the cellar and laboratory. Since 1986, the domaine has been in "lutte intege," a regime combining organic, biodynamic, and integrated pest management strategies to produce the highest quality fruit. Pinots and Chardonnays from Dujac reflect this approach, garnering high scores and praise from critics year in and year out.

In 2004, the Seysses family began acting as negociants, partnering with local winegrowers in the Cote d'Or to produce wines bearing the Dujac Fils & Pere designation.
