Reviews 91-93 points Wine Advocate "The 2016 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Aux Combottes has a delightful bouquet with pure red cherry and raspberry fruit, elegant and finessed with floral notes developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a supple texture, a little graininess toward the finish with a structured tobacco-tinged finish. (NM)" 93 points Burghound "An admirably pure, elegant and airy nose reflects notes of essence of red currant, rose petal, green tea and discreet spice nuances. The round and transparent medium weight flavors possess first-rate precision on the balanced finish that displays excellent length. This isn't particularly dense but it will require extended cellaring even given that the natural finesse of a fine Combottes is on parade. (AM)"
About Domaine Dujac
Unlike most Burgundian wine stories, the story behind Domaine Dujac is that of a self-made man, Jacques Seysses, who left a career in banking to purchase an old winery and create Domaine Dujac in 1967. Almost immediately, he earned acclaim for his flavorful interpretations of the Cote de Nuits’s classic crus. Based in Morey St-Denis, Domaine Dujac started with a mere four hectares, but Jacques has since built it up to nearly 12 hectares today, including holdings in seven legendary grand crus and 11 premier crus. Today the Domaine is run by Jacques' sons Jeremy, Alec, and daughter-in-law, Diana Snowdon, an American enologist.The Dujac style rests upon constant improvement in the vineyards and the use of traditional methods in the cellars. In 1987, Jacques moved to sustainable farming, then to organic in 2001. Today, he combines organic, biodynamic and integrated pest management practices to optimize the health and productivity of his vines. In the cellars, he uses stems to reduce harsh tannins and bruising of the grapes, reduces the number of rackings, and extends fermentations through cooler temperatures. Consistently delicious and consistently hailed by critics, the wines of Domaine Dujac are must-haves for any serious collector’s cellar.
