Burghound | Rating: 92A discreet application of wood frames the fresh, cool and relatively airy aromas of high-toned cherry, pomegranate and ample floral scents. Here too there is a sleek mouth feel to the utterly delicious and lightly mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that retain a lovely sense of underlying tension and fine delineation on the balanced, long and solidly persistent finish. If there is a nit it's that the usual complexity that this wine displays, even when young, isn't present though more than I foresee could very well develop.Author: Allen Meadows
Wine Advocate | Rating: 88Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru aux Combottes has a light, unpretentious, cranberry and strawberry nose with undergrowth/woodland scents coming through with aeration. It would benefit from more vigor (though that usually comes later with Dujac's wines). The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, not as harmonious as its peers, a little edgy and angular at the moment. My main gripe at the moment is that it just cuts away a little short on the finish, leaving you wanting more. There were other Dujac 2013s that showed better.

Vinous | Rating: 93The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Combottes is impressive. Power and explosive to the core, with fabulous energy, the Combottes is wonderfully alive in the glass. The 2013 is intensely perfumed and light on its feet, which is to say very much in the style of the year. Deceptively medium in body, the 2013 boasts notable depth, especially on the finish, where a crescendo of flavors and textures is utterly captivating.Author: Antonio Galloni
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.

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
