(from a 1.48 ha parcel). This was initially noticeably reduced but aggressive swirling coaxes out a nose that is even more floral still with a pungent violet and rose character to the very fresh spice and earth-inflected fresh berry fruit aromas. There is beautiful subtlety to the detailed, refined and admirably pure middle weight flavors that possess a velvety, even plush mouth feel, all wrapped in a perfectly balanced and harmonious finish where the supporting tannins are remarkably fine-grained. This is really lovely stuff, indeed it is textbook Clos St. Denis.

Medium bright red. Pungent, high-pitched aromas of raspberry, blood orange, cocoa powder and flowers; a real essence of Burgundy. Juicy but youthfully imploded; showing less volume than the Clos de la Roche, but its purity and penetrating tangy quality are remarkable. Subtly sweet, delicate and spectacularly perfumed, finishing extremely long and juicy, with a very firm spine of acids and tannins. In a distinctly more feminine style than the Clos de la Roche, but this still calls for a minimum of ten years in the cellar.

The 2010 Clos St. Denis is downright explosive from the first taste. An exotic melange of dark cherries, plums, minerals and cloves are all supported by insistent underlying minerality. The wine continues to grow in the glass, as layers of flavor fill out its broad-shouldered frame nicely. Blackberries, cassis, menthol and licorice flow through to the textured finish. This is a breathtaking effort. It is also a wine for the very patient.

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.
