  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($230) Palish red. Medicinal aromas of crushed blueberry and spices, with an intriguing element of dried flowers. Dense, serious and concentrated but more austere than the Clos de la Roche. Restrained for a young 2007 but finishes with lovely tangy sweetness and building tannins. This has very good energy and thrust for the vintage and merits eight to ten years of patience.

    Much more stuffing and substance than the Clos de la Roche. Lots of fruit and a bit of focus. Certainly clean but the tannins are not as ripe as in some other Dujac 2007s. This is far from well integrated though it may all come together? Crunchy fruit.

    The Dujac 2007 Bonnes Mares displays a wild berry concentration and pungent, resinous and horehound-like herbal notes I associate with this site. Dark suggestions of game probably offer a glimpse of the evolution to come, though this is corseted with fine-grained tannin and an almost stony undertone takes on unexpected prominence in its forceful, gripping finish. Here's one 2007 almost sure to be worth following for close to a decade.

  • 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.
