  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    Good bright red. More perfumed on the nose than the village Morey, offering cherry and floral aromas. Juicy, fruity and energetic, with red fruit flavors accented but not dominated by pepper and herbs. Finishes with firm, slightly dry-edged tannins and good lift.

    Relatively strong reduction renders the nose difficult to assess. There is a really lovely sense of energy and refinement to the lightly mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that possess fine transparency on the balanced and solidly persistent finish. This is very Chambolle in character and usually it is my favorite of the three villages wines but in 2011 it appears as though this is nosed out by the Gevrey.

  • 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.
