Jasper Morris MW quotes “Dujac wines are not necessarily the deepest in colour but are noted for their exceptional fragrance, structure and longevity. With seven grands crus in the stable, Dujac is today one of Burgundy’s leading domaines”.

Domaine Dujac in Burgundy was acquired by Jacques Seysses in 1967. The domaine in Morey-St-Denis had 4 hectares of vineyards and he has subsequently built it up to 11.5 hectares. Domaine Dujac now includes holdings in Clos de la Roche, Clos St-Denis, Bonnes-Mares, Echézeaux and Charmes-Chambertin . “Use knowledge and technology to counter accidents – for example, bad weather – but, if all is going well, don’t interfere,” says Seysses and this principle guides much of what happens in the vineyards and the cellars. Dujac wines are neither filtered nor fined and all of his premiers and grands crus are aged in 100% new oak. These are wines of the very highest order.

Tasting Notes

89 Points Allen Meadows
A subtle touch of wood spice frames bright, fresh, airy and cool aromas of mostly red berry fruit, underbrush and an attractive stoniness that transfers over to the nicely rich flavors that possess slightly better volume on the sappy and long flavors that culminate in a punchy and rather delicate finish.

89 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Tart, ripe red fruits and oregano on the nose of the Dujac 2007 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Combottes signal the sort of impression conveyed seamless throughout this polished yet bright Pinot. Here too, hints of caramelization strike an at least as yet rather detached tone, and while there is undeniably impressive persistence, this is less fun or juicily satisfying to savor for now than is the corresponding Morey 1er Cru. I would plan on following it, watchfully, over the next 4-6 years.
