2019 Domaine Dujac Charmes-Chambertin #158994117
Reviews 91-94 points Burghound "Here too the floral elements take center stage on the earthier and more sauvage-inflected dark pinot fruit and underbrush scents. There is also a relatively sleek mid-palate to the slightly bigger and tautly muscular flavors that firm up quickly on the youthfully austere and borderline rustic finale where a touch of warmth slowly emerges.

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.
