    The 2014 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru aux Combottes, which includes around 80% whole bunch fruit, has a fragrant, floral bouquet that opens wonderfully in the glass: mineral-tinged black fruit that is very delineated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine saline seam, quite Morey-Saint-Denis in style, a little foursquare on the finish. I like the precision here in this Gevrey-Combottes that is somewhat sturdy, but with impressive detail.

    This is also notably airy, cool and almost as elegant with its intensely floral nose that is composed by notes of restrained red pinot fruit, earth and tea scents that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The racy, intense and beautifully precise medium weight flavors that deliver excellent depth and persistence. Again this is not super dense but this certainly doesn't lack for intensity or refinement. Plus it should generously reward mid-term cellaring.

    Bright, dark red. Sexy but reticent nose hints at black cherry, raspberry and leather. Then sweet, pliant and seriously concentrated on the palate, communicating sappy energy to the flavors of red and dark berries and spices. The dark-fruit finish features chewy tannins and excellent length.

  • 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.
