  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    (mostly from fruit on the Morey side of the appellation): Good full red. Perfumed aromas of raspberry, orange peel and rose petal. Sappy, spicy and sweet, with dark raspberry fruit complicated by an herbal element. This is normally a very firmly tannic wine in the early going, but it's unusually sweet and tactile today. Seysses notes that the estate is now extracting more gently.

  • Burghound | Rating: 89

    Mild reduction renders the nose hard to evaluate though the underlying fruit definitely appears to be ripe. There is plenty of verve to the detailed and quietly mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess that lovely sense of tension on the supple, even delicate yet firm, balanced and solidly focused finish. This is very Chambolle.

  • 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.
