Domaine Dujac in Burgundy was acquired by Jacques Seysses in 1967. The domaine in Morey-St-Denis had 4 hectares of vineyards and he has subsequently built it up to 11.5 hectares. Domaine Dujac now includes holdings in Clos de la Roche, Clos St-Denis, Bonnes-Mares, Echézeaux and Charmes-Chambertin . "Use knowledge and technology to counter accidents - for example, bad weather - but, if all is going well, don't interfere," says Seysses and this principle guides much of what happens in the vineyards and the cellars. Dujac wines are neither filtered nor fined and all of his premiers and grands crus are aged in 100% new oak. These are wines of the very highest order.
A strikingly floral nose of mostly red berry fruit and spice elements is more elegant. The palate impression of the middle weight flavors is unusually supple though the supporting tannins cause the youthfully austere finish to tighten up. The 2017 CSD is even more a wine of finesse than it typically is though with even better complexity. Tasted: Jan 20; Drink: 2032+; Issue: 77; Rating 93 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
Soaring from the glass with aromas of raspberries, cherries and blood orange mingled with nuances of peony, raw cocoa, cinnamon and cedar wood, Dujac's 2017 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru is full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, its deep core of elegantly concentrated fruit framed by supple and powdery tannins and underpinned by succulent acids. Long, perfumed and defined, this was showing very well indeed from bottle. Tasted: Jan 20; Drink: 2027-2060; Rating: 95 Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
