Domaine Dujac is a relatively "young" addition to Burgundian winemaking (because the 1960's is considered contemporary for the that region). After Jacques Seysses, a fine food and wine enthusiast and wealthy businessman in his family's buscuit-making company, purchased a property in the Morey-Saint-Denis area in 1967, they began growing estate vines and purchasing fruit from their neighbors. Jacques Seysses had studied in Burgundy for two years, used his keen palette for fine wine to guide winemaking decisions and often mimicked the processes employed by Domaine Romanee-Conti. In 1969 they bottled their first vintage and, thanks to his father's connections to fine restaurants, was instantly well received.
Fast forward three decades. His children, sons, Jeremey and Alec, and daughter-in-law, Diana, began running the winemaking at Dujac. Since then the winery has introduced more modern techniques, like air-conditioning the cellar to stall the malolactic fermentation and destemming on occasion and many others, resulting in a different style than the Dujac wines of the 70's and 80's. The winery has also acquired additional properties since its inception to expand their offerings, including some grand crus. They've successfully molded themselves into one of Burgundy's premier domaines.
We have many of these appellation wines available, but the 2012s have newly arrived! Antonio Galloni released a review of the 2012 Dujac wines (in January 2014), where he praised the wines as "magnificent" and "rich, textured." Many of the tasting notes are pasted below. Dujac has built a reputation for having one of the finest wines in Cote-d'Or, so you surely will be delighted.
