Based on 3 reviews on Cellartracker.com
Reviews 96 points Wine Advocate "Unwinding in the glass with aromas of dark berries, warm spices, orange rind, woodsmoke and loamy soil, it's full-bodied, layered and muscular, with lively acids, serious concentration and rich, powdery structuring tannins. (WK)" 97-99 points Vinous "The 2019 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a tightly wound bouquet with beautifully defined red fruit laced with Earl Grey, autumn leaves and a touch of white pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, demonstrating a little more girth and depth than the Clos Saint-Denis. It gently builds to a spicy and tensile finish, lingering peppery notes ensuring that you will not forget it in a hurry. Every vine that contributed fruit to this wine deserves a big shiny medal. (NM)" 95 points Burghound "More deeply pitched aromas are comprised by notes of poached plum, newly turned earth and the sauvage. The exceptionally fresh large-scaled flavors possess a suave mid-palate texture while displaying outstanding depth on the sneaky long and very firm finale. (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.
