Reviews 94-96 points Wine Advocate "The 2016 Romanee Saint Vivant Grand Cru has a sensual, quixotic bouquet with macerated small red cherries, blueberry, a light marine influence developing in the glass. This offers haunting purity, a real femme fatale. It’s actually more like a Richebourg in style as it broadens and deeps with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fine acidity, not quite as sensual as the Bonnes-Mares with a tender, lightly spiced finish. This is just ridden with class. (NM)" 93-96 points Burghound "An exuberantly spicy and broadly floral-infused nose of mostly red currant and cherry aromas is also elegant, pure and well-layered. The wonderfully refined and equally pure medium weight flavors possess exquisite persistence on the tightly wound, focused and impeccably well-balanced finale. A RSV of class and grace. (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.
