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.
Moderate wood frames white orchard fruit, floral and soft citrus nuances. The notably rich and relatively generously proportioned flavors possess an appealing sense of underlying verve before culminating in a stony, delicious and dry-in-the-best sense finish.

The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières is showing brilliantly from bottle, soaring from the glass with aromas of fresh pear, citrus oil, dried white flowers, fresh pastry and nutmeg. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with an elegantly concentrated core, racy acids and a long finish. This has gained in precision with élevage and surpasses its showing last year. Tasted: Jan 20; Drink: 2022-2040; Rating: 93 Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
