Domaine Dujac in Burgundy was acquired by Jacques Seysses in 1967. The domaine in Morey-St-Denis had 4 hectares of vineyards and he has subsequently built it up to 11.5 hectares. Domaine Dujac now includes holdings in Clos de la Roche, Clos St-Denis, Bonnes-Mares, Echézeaux and Charmes-Chambertin . "Use knowledge and technology to counter accidents - for example, bad weather - but, if all is going well, don't interfere," says Seysses and this principle guides much of what happens in the vineyards and the cellars. Dujac wines are neither filtered nor fined and all of his premiers and grands crus are aged in 100% new oak.
Domaine Dujac Clos de la Roche 2000
This 2000 was absolutely singing and really showed how beautifully this wine has developed with the passing years. The bouquet is deep, focused and beautifully complex, wafting from the glass in a blend of red and black cherries, roasted game, forest floor, a touch of cinnamon, marvelous soil tones and a very suave and understated base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, complex and shows marvelous mid-palate depth, with a velvety palate impression, superb complexity, melting tannins and really impressive length and grip on the very classy finish. This is a really a beautiful 2000 red Burgundy and one of the best vintages of this bottling for current drinking. Drink between 2016-2030.
