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 cool and relatively airy nose exhibits mostly red berry fruit aromas with background hints of rose petal and earth. There is fine punch and lovely detail to the relatively robust flavors though there is a hint of dryness on the finish that will likely age out and my projected range offers the benefit of the doubt.

91 Points Vinous
(from a crop level of 35 hectoliters per hectare): Moderately saturated medium red. Aromas of black raspberry, brown spices and musky chocolatey oak. In a more savory style than the négociant version but also shows lovely juicy energy and a more relaxed quality to its flavors of dark raspberry, resin and spices.
