Reviews 89-91 points Burghound "...its brooding nose of plum, dark currant, floral and sauvage hints. There is excellent intensity and underlying tension suffusing the medium-bodied flavors that retain a lovely sense of detail and particularly so on the more complex and longer finish. This offers fine quality for its level and is worth considering. (AM)" 90 points John Gilman "The wine is nicely precise aromatically, delivering scents of red and black cherries, a nice touch of meatiness, dark chocolate, woodsmoke, soil and a dollop of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and has a nice touch of sap at the core, with good soil signature, suave tannins and good length and grip on the properly structured young finish. (JG)"

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.
