    (this also finished its malo on the late side): Good bright red. Primary but very ripe aromas of raspberry, flowers, graphite and meat. Juicy and spicy but a bit lean and youthfully imploded, with brisk acidity currently keeping the fresh fruit flavors under wraps. Finishes firmly tannic and persistent. I like this wine's high tones but would not touch a bottle for at least six or seven years.

    The 2009 Charmes-Chambertin is unbelievably sophisticated and gracious. The warmth of the year has filled out the wine beautifully and also softened the tannins. This is a decidedly rich, expansive Charmes that impresses for its aristocratic personality. I hope to taste it again in another decade or so. I noted that the Charmes was quite a bit more complex from bottle than it was from barrel.

    Very dark crimson. One of two wines that is still in malolactic fermentation here. Racy and vital and with lots of life but difficult to taste. Very cool.

  • 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.
