Domaine Dujac

dujac-sign.jpgAn extremely smooth transition of generation has taken place at Domaine Dujac over the past few years, as Jeremy Seysses and his wife have taken control of the vineyards and winery from Jacques and Rosalind, who established it in the 1960s.  The changes are subtle at this perennially high-quality domaine, such as the reduction in percentage of stems included each year (previously 100%, now still high but varying according to vintage) and an increase in biologique and biodynamic practices.

Vineyard holdings have also increased with the 2005 acquisition of the Charles Thomas domaine (shared with Domaine de Montille), including small (and rarely seen) plots in Romanee St.-Vivant, Echezeaux and Malconsorts.

Notwithstanding the addition of a number of high profile vineyards, the focus remains clearly on the traditional holdings in and around Morey St.-Denis.  

I must confess to having been regularly underwhelmed by Dujac's wines - especially considering the high esteem they have always been held, but recent vintages (2005 onwards) have impressed me much more.  They are certainly wines that positively demand ageing, as they can appear reticent upon release, yet certainly flourish with even a few years in bottle.  And in the heady world of top-end Burgundy, their pricing remains sensible relative to many of their peers.
