  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    Deep red. Briary red berries, mocha, licorice, leather and smoky oak on the highly aromatic nose. Impressively thick and concentrated, but also conveys an impression of firm acidity. Intriguing cool menthol note along with sappy red berries. One senses the vineyard character here. Finishes firmly tannic but not dry. Very backward wine with a bright future.

  • Burghound | Rating: 90

    Gorgeously fragrant and sweet pinot fruit aromas laced with licorice, earth, blackberries and distinct oak notes lead to seductively textured flavors that are rich and intense with significant yet ripe, velvety, almost fine tannins. The structure has begun to melt but it is by no means fully resolved and I would be inclined to give this another 3 to 5 years in botle first before drinking over the next decade. Multiple notes.­

  • 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.
