Given land prices in Burgundy today, the creation of a fine domaine without benefit of inheritance seems almost impossible. Almost. Jacques Seysses managed, beginning in the mid 1960's, and today this Morey based domain has enviable 12ha, including parcels in 5 Grand Crus. Seysses doesn't use press-wines, keeps the fermentation and cuvasion relatively cool, and racks as often as necessary in order to get rid of savoury flavours - yet he does (like his friend Aubert de Villaine at DRC) use all the stems and he also uses new, lightly toasted wood. The result is often wine of relatively pale colour and soft texture, yet great depth, fruit and refinement.

A fresh and ripe nose is comprised by spicy aromas of various dark berries, underbrush and a hint of the sauvage. There is very good energy to the delicious and nicely refined medium weight flavors that deliver excellent length on the intense and firm finish. This is really lovely and in particular I admire the impeccable balance. Date: Jan 2021; Drink: 2031+; Issue: 81; Rating 91-94 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound

Notes of orange rind, exotic spices, red berries, plums and incense preface the 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Aux Combottes, a medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered wine that's showing brilliantly in bottle. Seamless, lively and concentrated, it concludes with a long, perfumed finish. Date: Jan 2022; Drink: 2025-2055; Rating: 94 Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
