  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

    The 2011 Romanee-St-Vivant Grand Cru has an appealing, very fragrant bouquet with pure blackberry, boysenberry, black tea and wilted rose petals that are all beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fine acidity and a tightly wound, mineral-rich finish that just tapers a little when I wanted it to fan out across the mouth. Still, I would afford this three or four years in bottle as there is great potential.

    Bright medium red. Redcurrant, raspberry and a hint of smoky oak on the nose. Juicy, spicy and light on its feet, if quite imploded today. Very sharply delineated wine with outstanding energy and lift. Not herbal but youthfully unforthcoming and in need of at least several years of bottle aging.

  • 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.
