  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($150) Medium red. Very closed on the nose. A bit sullen in the mouth, too, with an autumnal underbrush flavor dominating. Less easy to taste today than the Combottes and distinctly drier. In a tougher style, a bit dusty on the back. One senses the effect of hail here.

  • Burghound | Rating: 90

    A seductive mix of wood spice, high-toned red berry fruit aromas and warm earth undertones give way to round, rich and sappy flavors that offer excellent volume and a delicious yet serious finale. There is a bit more structure compared to the Combottes and this too is very pure, balanced, persistent and sweet.

    Didn't seem totally integrated yet, but opened up with some air. Would've been better with another year or two of bottle 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.
