2019 Domaine Dujac Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru

$399.00

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.

Description

89-92 Points Allen Meadows
Ripe purple fruit combines with notes of earth, violet and plenty of sauvage character. There is fine richness and very good mid-palate density to the dusty and serious but not really austere finale. This is sufficiently firm to reward at least a decade of cellaring and 15 is not out of the question.

92-94+ Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2019 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru is very promising indeed, mingling aromas of raspberries and plums with scents of rose petals, dark chocolate and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, perfumed and tightly wound, with fine depth at the core, lively acids and a long, saline finish, I increasingly think that this cuvée is the most underrated wine in the Domaine Dujac portfolio.
