Burghound, January 2012,
Discreet wood spice adds breadth to the cool and quite concentrated nose of enveloping floral notes, raspberry and red currants that precede the intense, tension-filled and beautifully precise medium-bodied flavors. This possesses a very firm but well-integrated structure that shapes the mineral-driven and superbly long finish. 2009 is a powerful yet refined vintage for this wine. Drink: 2024+.Notes: from a 1.48 ha parcel.
Jacques Seysses bought a small domaine in Morey-Saint-Denis in 1967 called Domaine Graillet and renamed it after himself, Domaine Dujac. Jacques spent several years learning winemaking from the late, great Gerard Potel at Domaine de la Pousse d’Or and he has been a great proponent of including the stems in fermentation. Over the years, Jacques and his wife Rosalind expanded the domaine and today the family has 15.5 hectares including seven grands crus. Today, two of their children, Jeremy and Alec, as well as Jeremy’s wife Diana, have joined the Jacques and Rosalind in the family business which continues to be one of Burgundy’s leading domaines.
Tucked between Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny, and sharing the same stratum of limestone, Morey-St-Denis is unfairly less celebrated than its better known neighbours. It boasts five Grand Crus, including Clos-St-Denis. Slightly lighter than Clos-de-la-Roche, Clos Saint-Denis' wines balance delicacy, finesse and wonderful Pinot fruit - the quintessential Grand Cru of Morey-St-Denis.
