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.
This too is really quite aromatically pretty with an elegant if noticeably wooded nose that offers up notes of red cherry, raspberry, lavender, violet and rose petal. As one would expect, there is better volume to the sleek and sophisticated medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent depth and persistence on the harmonious and Zen-like finale. Lovely stuff that is built to reward mid-term cellaring. Tasted: Jan 20; Drink: 2029+; Issue: 77; Comments: Outstanding; Rating 92 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Aux Combottes bursts with aromas of sweet red berries, cherries, orange rind, cinnamon, peonies and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and succulent, with a fleshy and open-knit core that's framed by melting tannins and lively acids, concluding with a perfumed finish.
