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

95-98 Points Jasper Morris
The Clos St-Denis is the wine which received the most punching down during extraction. most punches down. Virulent purple, strict and sturdy stuff, pure red fruit, with some cherries. Cheerful vigorous fruit, slightly more tannins, all the weight, a little more backward than Clos de la Roche. This is a powerful, serious wine with a very long term future.

93-96 Points Allen Meadows
There is plenty of whole cluster influence on the perfumed aromas of red berries, spice, red and dark berries and a pretty hint of exotic tea. The energetic and beautifully delineated medium weight plus flavors exhibit focused power on the almost painfully intense and lightly stony, youthfully austere and hugely long finish. This is most impressive and a wine that should age gracefully thanks to its Zen-like harmony.
