    Medium red. Deeper pitched, complex aromas of black raspberry, gunpowder, mulch, smoke and charred oak. Big and rich in the mouth, with excellent depth of flavor and solid underlying structure. Note of tarry oak. Smooth, fresh and very persistent on the finish. I like this.

    The ruby-colored 1997 Clos St.-Denis reveals sweet candied cherry aromas, intermingled with violets, roses, and spices. It possesses outstanding breadth, precision, and lace-like finesse, yet also reveals an impressive underlying power. This expressive, red berry-flavored, and admirably persistent wine is already a delight to drink, yet has the capacity to mature and evolve over the next 8-10 years.

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.
