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 exuberantly spicy and ultra-floral suffused nose of plum, dark currant and sandalwood is trimmed in a subtle but not invisible touch of oak. The super-sleek, intense and wonderfully delineated flavors are supported by very fine-grained tannins on the overtly mineral-driven, youthfully austere and beautifully long finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This too is excellent. Date: Jan 2021; Drink: 2031+; Issue: 81; Comments: Sweet Spot Outstanding; Rating 91-94 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
Notes of cherries, wild berries, burning embers, exotic spices and orange rind introduce Dujac's 2019 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts, a medium to full-bodied, lively and precise wine with a pretty core of fruit, fine tannins and a bright, mineral finish. This higher-altitude site appears to have turned in a very strong performance this year. Date: Jan 2021; Drink: NA; Rating: 93-95 Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
