Notes
Deep red-ruby. Pure but tight aromas of dark raspberry, brown spices and graphite. Dense, fat and rich but quite youthfully reduced, showing notes of smoke and toast. This amazingly chewy and tactile wine needs a lot of patience. Sullen today but very long and strong on the back end, with a powerful impression of dry extract and a finishing note of chocolate. If you invest in a wine like this, don't even think of opening it any time soon (Jeremy Seysses suggests waiting 12 years).

Domaine Dujac

Domaine Dujac

For nearly half a century, Domaine Dujac has been run by Jacques Seysses. He has overseen the expansion of the domaine from some 5 hectares that it was in 1967, to the 15.25 cultivated today. Whilst the baton of day-to-day activity may have passed to Seysses’ sons, Alec and Jeremy and daughter-in-law, Diana, Jacques remains an integral part of Dujac. Located in Morey-St-Denis and covering 11 appellations, including the Grand Crus of Bonnes Mares and Charmes Chambertin as well as the 1er Crus of Malconsorts, Aux Combettes and Morey-St-Denis - parcels are small and selections precise. Inspired by the great Burgundian vigneron, Charles Rousseau, the Seysses’ aim is to make elegant, fine, complex and charming wines. Fermentation includes stems so as to avoid bruising the grapes, macerations are short, with maturation taking place in 80% new oak for Premier Crus, 100% new oak for Grand Crus, remaining on lees for a year.
