    Bright crimson. A little stemmy. Very full and sweet and user-friendly. There is substance here too. Quite dry tannins on the finish but very fine ones. Lots of concentration. Long.

    Good medium red. Musky soil tones and black raspberry on the nose. Supple, spicy and sweet, with sound underlying minerality contributing to the impression of concentration. Finishes bright and long, with pronounced terroir character. Very good for this village wine.

    A lighter styled wine. Needed a little air to open up into the very pretty wine that it is. This shows a nice tart cherry profile backed by some whole cluster aromas that will need a little more time to integrate. This shows the typical Morey-St-Denis mineral quality that I love. I bet this will benefit from a few years in the cellar. Recomended.

    A little stinky on being opened, blows off after a while and shows wild strawberries, black cherry, rose petal jelly, autumn smoke. Mouth filling on the palate: good juicy black fruits, fine, gently persistent acidity; noticeable tannins that are quite stalky at the moment. Slightly green note on the medium length finish, but on the whole this is typical, lovely villages Morey that will reward decanting or a couple more years in the cellar.

    An interesting nose of earth, red currant, cherry (queue de cerise), floral (violets). Medium bodied with some black pepper notes; good acidity and a firm, if stemmy, finish.

    Deep, dark and powerful nose. I get a little bit of black pepper and spice on the palate as well as a touch of violets. This wine has a lot of dense, chewy stuffing and needs a little bit of air to breath. Once it does, man are you in for a treat.

    Some sulfur, metallic notes on the nose, blow off quickly. Ripe red fruits, some acid on the finish. Improved significantly after opening, becoming even more balanced and delightful.

    This one takes a little time to come around, but with air the darker (but not dark) fruit and spice characteristics kick in, with a nice floral element on the nose. Shows good concentration and depth for the level.

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.
