  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Good bright, dark red. Musky aromas of redcurrant and raspberry. Supple and sweet if not particularly complex, with a finer grain than the Combottes. Flavors of red fruits and smoke linger on the finish, which shows a light dusting of tannins. Very nicely balanced wine.

    Smoky black tea, sweet floral perfume, and oriental spices greet the nose from the glass of Dujac 2006 Chambolle-Musigny Les Gruenchers. Subtly creamy in texture, this displays clarity to inner mouth perfume, spice, and saline, chalky mineral nuances that is exceptional for the vintage. Despite the textural allure, it finishes with a penetration, rectitude, and hint of bitterness that for some tasters may add up to a touch of austerity, yet preserves a wealth of floral and mineral nuances as well as genuine refreshment. I expect this will be best enjoyed over the next 5-7 years.

  • 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.
