Domaine Dujac, among the best Pinot Noir interpreters in Burgundy
Domaine Dujac is a biodynamic winery in Burgundy, located in Morey Saint-Denis. Jacques Seysses created the winery from a newly acquired estate in 1967 and still runs it with the help of his sons Jeremy, oenologist, and Alec. Over the years, the winery has expanded by acquiring important plots of land, and today it has about 17 hectares of vines for an annual production of 80,000 bottles.
Since 1986 they have been following organic and biodynamic methods: the use of pesticides and other chemical substances in the vineyard is banned, while in the cellar the interventions are minimal. The grapes are vinified with the stalks and the alcoholic fermentation is carried out spontaneously using only indigenous yeasts, while the ageing takes place in new barrels for the Grand Cru and partly used for the Premier Cru and Village.
The vines cultivated are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but the star of their bottles is undoubtedly the Pinot Noir, for which the company is recognised as one of the best interpreters of this vine in the whole of Burgundy. The Seysses brothers are looking for a decisive and deep style, through the vinification of whole grapes: the resulting wine is full of matter and suitable for a long aging after which it will be enriched with important tertiary aromas. Despite this, the wines of Domaine Dujac do not lack elegance and refinement, elements that combine to give a great harmony.
