International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90($160) Palish red. Cherry, red berries, rose petal, spices and a peppery nuance on the nose. Sweet, dense and medium-bodied, with concentrated flavors of red fruits and spices nicely perked up by dusty minerality. Finishes with sweet tannins and lovely length. Showing some oak spice today.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2010
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Orange hue to the rim. Pronounced earth, iodine, smoke and damp bonfire. Lots of expressive, grainy tannins, green stalky hints. Very much the burgundian whole-bunch style. (RH)Author: Richard Hemming
Wine Advocate | Rating: 89Tart, ripe red fruits and oregano on the nose of the Dujac 2007 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Combottes signal the sort of impression conveyed seamless throughout this polished yet bright Pinot. Here too, hints of caramelization strike an at least as yet rather detached tone, and while there is undeniably impressive persistence, this is less fun or juicily satisfying to savor for now than is the corresponding Morey 1er Cru. I would plan on following it, watchfully, over the next 4-6 years.Author: David Schildknecht

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.

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
