History

   
 
 
When Jacques Seysses founded Domaine Dujac in 1967 with his father, Louis, his vision was to 
blend modern techniques with what he admired in traditional winemaking, while refining a style 
he could call his own. 
In his nearly 50 years in Burgundy, he has built a reputation for being a winemaker that 
is youthful in spirit and passionate about quality. The past few years have seen the arrival 
of the next generation of Seysses, as both Jacques and his wife Rosalind have begun to cede 
control to their oldest son, Jeremy (who assists with winemaking), and Jeremy’s wife, 
Diana Snowden Seysses (who is in charge of the cellar and laboratory). Additionally, 
Alex, Jacques and Rosalind’s second son, has taken over administrative duties.

Vineyards

In the vineyard, manager, Lilian Robin, has continued the enormous ongoing effort to incorporate biodynamic farming that was initiated at the domaine in the mid-1980s by the late Christophe Morin. To this end, no herbicides or insecticides have been used since 1986 and other viticultural practices are under constant review. Jacques describes Dujac’s commitment to the environment by saying, ‘‘we are biodynamic, but I try not to make too much of it – we will certainly never be putting our organic status on the bottles. It’s just about good winemaking.”

Jeremy Seysses is solely responsible for producing the white wines of both Domaine Dujac and Dujac Fils & Père. The

Domaine whites come from two small parcels that historically produced red wines; with a great deal of time and analysis of the soil composition, they decided to plant Chardonnay, both in the front of the Domaine and on the slopes of Monts Luisants, just above the famed Clos de la Roche.

Winemaking

While the family clearly welcomes innovation, their investment in quality is also steeped in tradition. Specifically, they attempt to intervene as little as possible with Mother Nature. In the cellar, this translates to minimal destemming and reducing the need for sulphur by using a generous percentage of new French oak, which imparts a long, slow oxygenation to young wine and leaches out wine-stabilizing tannins. In the end, Dujac’s wines have a unique style that, depending on the vintage, may be lighter or richer, but are always complex and wonderfully silky smooth on the palate.

2005 - A magnificent red wine vintage in Burgundy. This was a dry year, though never particularly hot, save for a heat-wave in May. A hail-storm on 17 July devastated the vines between the villages of Santenay and Chassagne-Montrachet. After a mixed August, and much-needed rain on 6 September, the skies cleared and it became increasingly sunny and warm. The Côte d'Or harvest began in the middle of the month and was all but complete by the week-end of 1st. October.


Now ten years old, the red wines, though many are still rather closed, are well deserving of all the bally-hoo they engendered at the outset. The vintage is consistently good (except naturally in Santenay and Chassagne-Montrachet) from Marsannay to Maranges, as well as proportionately so from grand cru to the humblest generic. Few past vintages come close. Perhaps the nearest is 1999, but that was a very much more generous harvest. The relative shortness of the 2005 crop can be seen in the concentration of the wines. They also have depth, finesse, harmony and the potential to last. But they are not monolithic. What more do you want? Don't start opening the best until 2020 or so.

What can I say about the 1989 Haut Brion that I haven’t already said over and over again.  It, along with the 1989 Petrus, are the two greatest “young” wines I have ever had, and the youngest wines I would include in my ‘Top Ten’ lifetime category (I would let them share a spot lol).  This wine has been great every time I tasted it and has never shut down.  ‘Humdinger’ summed it up nicely (98+).

Burgundy was beset by two problems in 2004: an unprecedented outbreak of oidium (which attacks the fruit, rather than the leaves) and several attacks of hail. Moreover, the crop was more than plentiful, and the season was wetter than usual, greyer than normal and colder than the average. There was an attack of ladybirds, say some, though what effect this would have on the potential crop was not made clear. Ladybirds, after all, are major predators against aphids. September, however, was kind, and what looked like being a disaster at the beginning of the month did in fact turn out at least OK - in those vineyards correctly maintained - for reds, and better still for whites.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Romanée-Conti 2010 / 20.0 points.


Fine colour. Aromatic, minerally nose. Not as fat as La Tache or Richebourg. A bit more of the stems. Best on the follow through. Very, very lovely complex fruit. Marvelous long, lingering finish. Truly excellent.

Undesputably, Burdundy counts as the wine growing region where some of the best wines are coming from. Burgundy has a higher number of appellations d'origine contrôlée (AOCs) than any other French region, and is often seen as the most terroir-conscious of the French wine regions.

I have been fortunate in the past to have participated in at least three important vertical tastings of Dujac Clos de la Roche, so this time I opted for Clos Saint-Denis. Before we sat down to taste I asked Jeremy how he would describe the difference between hese two adjacent climats.


'Aromatically they are both unmistakably Morey-Saint-Denis.' Jeremy began. 'That is there are suggestions of nutmeg and cinnamon to go with the cherry-raspberry-strawberry. But texturally they are quite different. Clos de la Roche (where the Dujacs have 1.95 hectares in six parcels with an overall average age of 45-50 years) has more structure, more tannin, and is generally more masculine. There is a minerally graphite aspect I don't find in Clos Saint-Denis.'


'In the Clos Saint-Denis (1.45 hectares in two parcels; also an average age of 45-50 years) the silky tannins are first and foremost. There is intensity without weight. Texturally there are similarities with Chambolle but in character our Clos Saint-Denis is quite different. There are aromatic fireworks to be found and a 'peacocks tail' as the wine opens out in the mouth that I find most appealing.'

Let’s talk Bordeaux. The Commander brought two gorgeous ‘82s which were both singing. L’Evangile, which is now owned and run by Lafite, and Trotanoy, which is owned and run by the Moueix family (aka Petrus) remain two of the best buys in all of Bordeaux, and these two wines showed why. The L’Evangile had sexy aromas and flavors of plum, olive and chocolate, and while still a bit tight, it was thick and delicious. The Trotanoy was a bit more open, dare I say sexier in its nose, showing blacker fruit and great autum floor action. It may be maturing a touch faster than the L’Evangile, but I found them qualitatively equal. The 1985 Petrus has never been considered a great Petrus, but out of double magnum, it came damn close. It was another sexy Pomerol nose, with more wheat and dust, along with touches of purple marzipan. The palate was rich and beautiful, w ith hints of olive and plum, and richer and more tannic than I expected, probably thanks to the larger format as much as anything else.

Bonnes Mares is a largish vineyard by Burgundian standards, and possesses, as you can see, a large number of owners. The 1.52 ha which lies in Morey are owned by the Clair family, and most of this is leased until 2016 to the Fougeray de Beauclair domaine, after which the parcel will revert to Bruno Clair, making him the second largest domaine in the climat.


Before the Clair-Daü estate was split in 1985 what is now owned by the Domaine Bart was also part of Clair-Daü. They were then the most important proprietors.

“There is nothing quite like a summer night full of great food, wine and friends, and there was one night this summer that stood out above all the rest, save The Tasting of the Year, of course. The ingredients were all set thanks to The Mogul, Gentleman Jim, Lady Agah, Alexander The Great and the one and only Big Boy, and we gathered on The Mogul’s very big boat for a doubleheader of sun and fun. Despite two minor jet ski accidents, everyone ended up OK and at the dinner table for a spectacular meal, although one of the guests didn’t remember a thing about dinner. We like to keep things anonymous here at Acker Merrall ;)”
