    An explosive, extremely complex and high-toned nose mixes primary and secondary aromas of roasted plums, earth and redcurrants introduces pungent, precise and firm flavors that possess real drive. This is sweet and bright on the palate though the flavors do show a trace of unintegrated wood on the otherwise long, velvety and impressively complex finish. A big Bonnes Mares with plenty of cellar time left and while it's unlikely that it will improve further, it will probably soften. Consistent, and multiple, notes.

    The Bonnes Mares is medium to deep ruby-colored, with an earthy, herb, black-cherry, and smoky, game-like nose, medium body, moderate tannin, and a muted but rich, firm, structured finish. The wine requires 2-3 years of cellaring and should keep for 10-12. While Domaine Dujac's 1993s possess some of the characteristic Jacques Seysses precociousness, they also contain plenty of structure and tannin. To my surprise, Seysses feels that the 1993 vintage is |one of his greatest, even better than 1990,| which he now dismisses as |over-ripe| and |atypical.|

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.
