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

89-92 Points Allen Meadows
This is aromatically similar but with even more floral character that is also reflected by the intense, punchy and tautly muscular medium-bodied flavors that possess both better density as well as more structure on the youthfully austere finale. This is going to require at least 5 years of cellaring to become more civilized and is built to reward a decade or more.

90-92 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Aromas of plums, cherries, raw cocoa, espresso roast and grilled meats introduce the 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru, a medium-bodied wine with tangy acids and a succulent core of fruit that largely conceals its fine structuring tannins.
