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.
Like the Gruenchers, the elegant and pure nose is highly perfumed and exuberantly spicy with cool aromas of both red and dark berries, exotic tea and a whisper of sandalwood. The strikingly textured medium-bodied flavors brim with both dry extract and minerality while exhibiting focused power on the youthfully austere, dusty and beautifully balanced finale. Excellent.

Racked to tank in preparation for bottling. One of the darker colours, some reduction on the first nose but this can’t keep the fruit energy down. Fine deep red cherry fruit, loads of energy here, still such a baby. Date: Dec 2021; Rating: 92-95 Points; Insideburgundy.com
