Burghound, January 2020,
A strikingly floral-suffused nose offers up a mix of violet, lavender and rose petal that adds elegance to the blend of red cherry aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is fine intensity to the beautifully well-detailed medium-bodied and subtly mineral-driven flavors that possess a gorgeous mid-palate mouthfeel, indeed the mid-palate is almost lacy, that gives way to a somewhat raspy and dusty finale. Note that my rating assumes that the finish will eventually round out. Drink 2032+
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.
One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Relatively large and consequently diverse for a Grand Cru, the better Echézeaux wines undoubtedly deserve this status. As always in Burgundy vineyard location and grower is critical.
