  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($160) Good deep red-ruby. Cooler, medicinal nose hints at licorice. Then almost shockingly sweet, fat and full, with flavors of brown spices and dark chocolate. Not a particularly fruity style, but subtly long on the aftertaste, with very sweet tannins.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Full of fresh blackberry and plum notes, this firmly structured red is straightforward, gushing with ripe black fruit. The tannins are dominant on the finish, but what fruit. Needs time.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

    The Domaine Dujac 2005 Morey-St.-Denis - incorporating the Les Porroux vineyard around the winery - soars from the glass with odors of incense, bitter-sweet black cherry, musky florality, a Chartreuse-like aura of herbal distillates, and wood smoke pungency. In the mouth, the black cherry and cassis fruit runs really deep, persistently wreathed in herbs and flowers, with satisfying hints of fruit skin bitterness and bitter chocolate and herb low tones. Already the texture is silken. The finish - while not overly candified in character - reminds me of sucking on fruit and herbal lozenges whose bittersweet residues cling tenaciously to the palate. How much better quality can one ask of a village wine?

    This is made up mainly of Ruchots. Very showy, gorgeous nose and full of zest and life - almost cheeky, it has so much to say for itself. There's a lightness of touch here with real race yet no shortage of structure. Appetising dry finish.

  • 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.
