    Good full deep red. Reticent aromas of black raspberry, licorice and spice. Juicy, lively and firm in the mouth, with good backbone and bright acids. Ripe, dusty tannins build with aeration, but are supported by the wine's material.

    The 1997 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Combottes is ruby-colored and reveals aromas of sweet red/black fruits dusted with talcum powder. Medium-bodied, this tangy, fresh, yet expansive wine displays briary blackberry and cassis flavors. It is silky-textured, elegant, and tightly wound.

    Beautiful fruit with plenty of new oak spice followed by round, sweet, delicious flavors and fine length. There is also noticeable oak but good balance here and the tannins are completely buried by the solid extract. Approachable now though this will age with no problem yet the question is whether or not the oak will ever integrate and on this issue, I am less optimistic.

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.
