Professional Reviews For This Wine


Burghound | Rating: 94

A cool, stony and reserved nose features spice, dark and red berry fruit, obvious earth and smoked game influences, all of which continue onto the intensely mineral-infused big-bodied flavors that for all the size and power remain beautifully detailed on the focused, powerful and moderately austere finish. This has wonderful potential and should be one of the longest-lived wines among the Dujac '08s.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

Good bright, dark red. Slightly reduced nose offers blackberry, huckleberry, mocha and pepper; quite dense and savory. Then sweet and thick in the mouth but with penetrating racy acidity framing the blackberry, menthol and licorice flavors. Quite closed in the middle for all its texture, but the slowly building, very subtle finish suggests that this will reward extended cellaring. Definitely a more glyceral Bonnes-Mares than the 2001 was, notes Seysses.

Very dark. Amazingly youthful and tightly coiled. Definitely lighter than some vintages with a hint of liquorice even, but a solidity underneath. Lots of fine tannin on the finish and bone dry. Wait! Pretty surly at the moment.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Black tea, herbal essences, tar, dried blood, and concentration of tiny black raspberries are suggested on the nose and palate of Dujac's 2008 Bonnes Mares. For all of its density, this exhibits invigorating primary juiciness, finishing with spirit-lifting, exuberant buoyancy and a nearly indelible paving of berry and herb essences, tar, graphite, and white pepper. This is a terrific ambassador for its vintage ' I find it hard to imagine another year in which it could have been grown ' and one that should perform admirably for another 12-15 years.

About This Producer


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.
