  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($158) Good red. Musky aroma of underbrush, with fruit currently suppressed. Sweet but closed, with more funky underbrush and herbs than fruit showing. Diana Snowden says this wine received an extra racking, with the lees added back to the barrel not long before the bottling. I tasted this from a 375 ml. bottle, so it's quite possible the regular bottles are less advanced.

    Produced from a parcel in the hillside Champs Traversins sector of its vineyard, the 2002 Echezeaux displays scents of licorice, black cherries, and herbs. Its sweet, balanced, elegant, medium-bodied character displays admirable purity, depth, and loads of candied cherries as well as delicate spices. This bright, expressive offering should be drunk between 2006 and 2013.

  • 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.
