    ($135) Medium red. Lovely floral lift to the aromas of red fruits, spices and minerals. Juicy and perfumed in the mouth, with captivating flavors of red cherry, rose petal and minerals. Little sign of greenness here. This boasts lovely clarity of flavor and a juicy, penetrating, youthfully tight finish featuring dusty tannins.

    A gentle hint of wood frames wonderfully elegant and exceptionally pure red berry and cherry fruit aromas that display a bit of Gevrey earth and complement perfectly the round, rich, sweet and detailed flavors that are notably refined. The balanced finish is dusty, persistent and sweet. I quite like this.

    Healthy crimson with some evolution at the rim. Light, briary nose. Good fruity hit on the front palate though lots of unresolved tannin still. And then on the back palate it becomes scrawny and a little short of fruit. The tannins intrude. Improved in the glass but I think you should probably keep this!

    Pretty tasty for an 04 but far from profound.

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.
