Good deep red. Pure, vibrant nose combines raspberry, dried flowers, smoky minerality and exotic spices. Like liquid velvet in the mouth; showing great density and depth and superb energy too. This is at another level of concentration. This wonderfully sweet, minerally Chambertin saturates every square millimeter of the palate with flavor and builds inexorably. Accessible now owing to its sheer textural richness, but will be even better in 12 years.

Dark and glowing crimson. 0.264 ha; in 2009 made five barrels. A good year. One of the more direct fruity Chambertins. 'Exciting to work with because the juice has a complexity that is very unusual’ according to the younger Seysses. Really tense and muscular and great tension and sinew and no point in spitting. Not subtle perhaps but with great vivacity.

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.
