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.
Here the expressive, high-toned and airy nose reflects notes of essence of red cherry, raspberry and lavender. There is terrific punch and delineation to the lighter weight flavors that brim with minerality before concluding in a youthfully austere, refreshing and focused finale. While there is more here, this too is a bit on the light side though to be clear, it's by no means dilute or lacking in flavor authority.
