  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($122) Moderately saturated medium red. Very ripe aromas of cherry and strawberry liqueur, roasted coffee and earth. Sweet and seamless, with good freshness owing to harmonious acidity. Light smoke and meat notes. A rather elegantly styled, full wine that offers considerable early appeal. Tannins are ripe and smooth.

  • Burghound | Rating: 92

    Ultra pure pinot fruit that is almost delicate in character. This is sweet, fine, pure and long with juicy, succulent, somewhat fleshy flavors yet offers surprisingly good precision on the back end. Very long and quite persistent. Delightful rather than compelling but this is so exuberant yet fine that it's impossible not to like. My rating assumes that it will add both weight and complexity with age.

  • 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.
