Founded in 1968 by Jacques Seysses and based in Burgundy's Morey-Saint-Denis appellation, Domaine Dujac is known for its broad spectrum of exceptional wines made from both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. They range from entry-level Bourgogne to others originating from some of the most esteemed grand cru vineyards in the Côte de Nuits, including Clos de la Roche and Le Chambertin.Seysses spent years acquainting himself with the craft of Burgundy winemaking from mentors such as Aubert de Villane from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Charles Rousseau of Domaine Armand Rousseau. He finally made his first purchase, a distressed property in Morey-Saint-Denis, and cultivated it back to life to support his Pinot Noir and Chardonnay plantings. The risk eventually proved profitable, and before long Jacques expanded the estate with the purchase of more plots in Clos de al Roche, Clos St. Denis and Bonnes-Mares, followed by additional acquisitions in Romanée-Saint-Vivant and Chambertin. Domaine Dujac had long been loyal to certain winemaking practices such as whole cluster pressing and 100% new oak barrels. However, these practices have been adjusted since Jacques’s sons took over the domaine’s operations. Grapes are now destemmed, less than 25% new oak is used, and air conditioning has been introduced to promote later malolactic fermentation. It has also been a wholly organic operation since 2008,and is dedicated to minimal chemical intervention so as to maintain the integrity of both the fruit and the land.Still, to this day, the wines are never filtered or fined, keeping with the traditional approach Jacques learned early on from many of Burgundy’s masters. Domaine Dujac, now spanning 12 hectares in some of Burgundy’s most elite properties, has holdings in eleven appellations, with eight of them being grand cru. The estate produces on average 5,000 cases per year.
