    The 2011 Echezeaux Grand Cru is raised in 90% new oak. It is buttoned up on the nose at first: straight-laced with strict red currant and raspberry leaf scents. The palate has tannic opening although it shows a little more cohesion than the Vosne 1er Crus, while the tannins seem finer on the finish. It is still tightly-wound, although it should evolve nicely with four or five years in bottle. Drink 2016-2025.

    (100% vendange entier ): Good full red. Red fruits, pepper, stone, spices and a pungent note of sandalwood on the nose. Intensely flavored and stylish, offering a good tight core of dark fruit flavor, enticing sweetness andserious spine. The wine's tight tannins will need time to expand during the last months of elevage and in the bottle. Terrific potential.

    (from the climat Champs Traversin). A discreet touch of wood sets off the spicy black cherry, cassis and floral aromas that slide gracefully into rich, generous and opulent large-scaled flavors that display both excellent volume and fine phenolic maturity of the structural items, all wrapped in a mouth coating finish. This is every bit as long as the Malconsorts but not quite as deep. That said, there is an abundance of dry extract here and it could match it in time.

  • 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.
