    ($142) Good deep red. Explosive aromas of red fruits, spices, rose petal, mocha, iron, underbrush and new oak. Sweet, musky and concentrated, with sappy red fruit flavors. Silky and expansive on the back half. Finishes with very fine tannins and excellent persistence.

    Produced from two parcels of equal size, one in the Mazoyeres-Chambertin and the other from Charmes-Chambertin, Dujac's 2002 Charmes-Chambertin is the finest I've tasted from this famous estate. Its gorgeous aromatics reveal profound cherry scents intermingled with flowers and fresh herbs. Concentrated, seamless, and boasting a sublime satiny mouth-feel, it harmoniously bathes the taster's palate with waves of candied red fruits. Raspberries, strawberries, cherries, notes of vanilla, white pepper, and violets can be found in its delightfully seductive and complex medium-bodied personality. I could almost hear Elvis crooning |Love Me Tender| as I reveled in this gem's ripe fruit.

    This wine would receive my vote for the most improved wine in the Dujac stable as it has displayed dramatic improvement since 1998. It is earthier, bigger, richer and denser than the Combottes with superb depth of material and solid density, all supported by buried tannins that are completely wrapped in sappy extract. A beautifully elegant yet altogether serious effort that also finishes with a touch of warmth and a very subtle hint of wood.

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.
