We’ve received a small allocation of these stunning Burgundies, unfortunately yields were down by almost 50% in 2015.  Scarcity, coupled with an increasing demand from emerging markets means as time goes on these are becoming rarer and extremely valuable!

Dujac Burgundies are internationally prized for their impeccable depth, detail and sleekness.  Top to bottom the quality and transparency of each wine is outstanding, at times mesmerising.  Based in Morey-Saint-Denis, their impressive holdings spill into Chambolle-Musigny, Vosne-Romanée and Gevrey-Chambertin.  To boot, their understanding of each region shines through in each wines’ expressive individuality.  Whole bunch is favoured, but the degree varies, depending on the vintage.  Nothing is formulaic.

On the 2015 Vintage…
‘The fruit was in splendid condition, incredibly healthy, with minimal sorting required.  The only negative being the yields, which were low again, between 30% – 50% down on average.  The naturally small bunch-set and the dry conditions having both limited the size of the crop.  The result is a very special vintage which will rank with the very best we have made.  The wines are clean, pure and concentrated but ablove all else, balanced, with high but supple tannins and juicy fruit in the reds. …’ Jeremy & Alec Seysses

As quantities of these wines are extremely limited, please get in touch with your wishlist as soon as possible. The notes below are from Stephen Tanzer, Nov 17 (vinous.com)

VILLAGE

2015 Domaine Dujac Morey-Saint-Denis ~ SOLD OUT

Laid-back aromas of black cherry, menthol and spices. Youthfully reticent but seamless, offering good flavor intensity but little early sweetness. Finishes with dusty but essentially supple tannins and savory, spicy soil tones…’

PREMIER CRU

2015 Domaine Dujac Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru ~ $253

(vinified with 90% whole clusters): ‘Pungent spices and minerals on the nose, but with a more subdued fruit element than the village version. A step up in concentration and density in the mouth but quite backward in the early going and dominated by its structure. Finishes with firm-edged tannins and a strong spicy character.’ November 2016, Stephen Tanzer

2015 Domaine Dujac Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Combottes 1er Cru ~ SOLD OUT

‘… offering aromas of strawberry liqueur, cherry and red licorice. Then dense, sappy and surprisingly tight in the mouth, with strong strawberry and raspberry fruit flavors supported by strong underlying mineral spine. Finishes strong and long, with excellent energy for the year.’

2015 Domaine Dujac Vosne-Romanée Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru ~ SOLD OUT

‘Superb floral lift to the aromas of dark raspberry and crushed-stone minerality. Larger-scaled and deeper than the Beaux Monts but at the same time showing outstanding sappy pungency and definition to its black raspberry and mineral flavors. Outstanding mineral-driven energy frames and extends the very long, slowly rising finish, which features chewy but fully ripe tannins. A splendid premier cru with grand cru volume and class.’

2015 Domaine Dujac Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts 1er Cru ~ $366

‘Distinctly more minerally on the nose than the Charmes-Chambertin, offering complex scents of black raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, violet and dark chocolate. More open-knit on the palate as well, but at the same time a bit more monolithic than its younger 2016 sibling, conveying a touch of smoky reduction to its very dense, ripe flavors of purple fruits, chocolate and minerals. Still, this very ripe, tactile wine has the stuffing to support its big, broad tannins, which reach the front teeth.’

2015 Domaine Dujac Chambolle-Musigny Les Gruenchers 1er Cru ~ $337

(not yet racked): ‘Slightly reduced aromas of raspberry, cherry and smoky minerality, lifted by a spicy topnote. Sweet raspberry and milk chocolate flavors are given a sappy quality by slightly edgy acidity. Not as deep as the Charmes-Chambertin that Jeremy Seysses presented before this wine but should gain in pliancy with a racking. Incidentally, this wine will not be offered in 2016 owing to the damaging spring frost.’  Tasted in Nov 2016, StephenTanzer

GRAND CRU

2015 Domaine Dujac Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru ~ SOLD OUT

‘Perfumed but reticent aromas of raspberry and rose petal. Very pure but tightly wound, showing more red fruit lift than the Clos de la Roche but less showy today. A darker note of medicinal black cherry contributes to this young wine’s serious mien. Less thick than the Clos de la Roche but still very 2015 in character. Finishes very long and floral, with firm but suave tannins. This wine calls for patience but I would not be surprised if it gave pleasure earlier than the Clos de la Roche.’

2015 Domaine Dujac Clos de la Roche Grand Cru ~ SOLD OUT

“…offering scents of black raspberry, clove, mocha and dark chocolate. Similarly more soil-driven in the mouth than the 2016 version, but with its thick flavors of earth, spices and saline minerality conveying a light touch for 2015. Finishes sappy, vibrant and long, with thoroughly ripe tannins and echoing minerality.’

2015 Domaine Dujac Echézeaux Grand Cru ~ $497
Note: From the climat Champs Traversin
‘Perfumed aromas of maraschino cherry, dried flowers and red licorice. Silky, juicy and fine-grained, conveying terrific intensity and a light touch to its red fruit, milk chocolate and mint flavors. The tactile, palate-staining finish features noble tannins. I find this more typical and more aromatic than the 2016 version. The yield here was under 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Jeremy Seysses, but the wine showed a distinctly relaxed quality.’

2015 Domaine Dujac Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru ~ $416

Black raspberry and a suggestion of musky torrefaction on the very ripe nose. Offers more energy in the mouth than the nose suggests, but this is still a very ripe, chocolatey, savory wine and not especially expressive today; I don’t find the floral quality shown by the young 2016. Finishes concentrated, backward and long, with brooding notes of licorice and earth. This wine appears to be dominated by its Mazoyères side and will require patience.’
