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 markedly floral-suffused nose freely offers up notes of dark raspberry, anise, tea and a hint of earth. There is a highly beguiling texture on the beautifully well-detailed flavors that possess lovely density if not the same sheer scale as the Clos de la Roche though the mouthfeel is clearly finer, all wrapped in an equally sneaky long finish. This is perhaps not quite as structured but at present, the CSD and the CdlR are qualitative equals.

The 2019 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru is performing superbly in bottle, soaring from the glass with scents of cherries, red berries, rose petals, orange peel and exotic spices. Full-bodied, ample and sensual, it's seamless and complete, with a velvety attack that segues into a vibrant core of fruit, concluding with a long, perfumed finish.
