    Bright pale ruby colour. There are some nice wild strawberry, beetroot and fresh cracked black pepper aromas on the nose that are a little thwarted by a stemmy / tomato leaf character. The palate is thinner than one would expect and a bit hollow in the middle. A crisp backbone of acidity provides some lift yet the medium+ level of astringent tannins lends a touch of bitterness to the long finish.

    Good full red. Aromas of mocha and pepper. Nicely concentrated and brisk, with dark fruit, spice and underbrush flavors offering good cut. Finishes with freshness and grip.

    Notably pale crimson/ruby with a very pale rim. Fresh, frank with a hint of rose petals and stalkiness but low key on the nose. Notable acidity and transparency - real zest, even a little carbon dioxide. Very clean and brisk but without that much length. Attention! Stylistic alert. This is very light, ie true to the vintage character. 13%

    Ripe, earthy and expressive with airy red pinot fruit aromas nuanced by hints of minerality and underbrush that blend into sweet, intense, muscular and nicely concentrated middle weight flavors that culminate in a slightly edgy finish. A lovely wine that is very pinot in style.

    Much lighter than the 05, which was tasted the week after.

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.
