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.
The 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru unwinds in the glass with aromas of sweet cherries and red berries mingled with nuances of rose petals, orange rind, cinnamon and forest floor. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, muscular and structured, with lively acids, fine concentration and a youthfully chalky finish.Date: Jan 2020; Drink: NA; Rating: 91-93 Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
A deft touch of wood sets off a blend of floral and earth-inflected dark berry fruit-suffused nose. The supple yet nicely detailed medium weight flavors also culminate in a grippy, firm and austere finish that isn't short but neither is it especially persistent. It's possible that the somewhat coarse tannins may well harmonize in time but my sense is that they're likely to remain prominent and not completely integrated.
