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

94-96 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2010 Echezeaux fleshes out beautifully on the palate with layers of seamless, totally integrated fruit. All of the elements meld together with supreme grace, making it hard to pick out the specific components. A deep, implosive finish laced with dark fruit, cassis, spices and minerals stains the palate. This is a fabulous showing.

92-94 Points Allen Meadows
A spicy, pure and lilting nose of impressively concentrated black berry fruit and warm earth aromas slides gracefully into equally dense, serious and mouth coating big-bodied flavors that possess excellent phenolic maturity before culminating in a delicious, focused and exquisitely balanced finish. The tannins are firm yet fine and seamlessly integrated with the mid-palate and finish that lingers and lingers.
