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.
An appealingly layered nose reveals notes of various red berries, especially cherry, along with floral and warm earth nuances. The succulent, round and delicious middle weight flavors that culminate in a moderately firm and youthfully austere finale. This is sufficiently supple on the mid-palate that it could actually be approached on the younger side. Date: Jan 2021; Drink: 2026+; Issue: 81; Rating 88-91 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
The 2019 Morey-Saint-Denis Village has turned out beautifully in bottle, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of orange rind, plums, peonies, cinnamon and other warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, ample and velvety, it's perfumed and enveloping, with supple tannins and a long, saline finish.
