Domaine Dujac

The Maison Dujac, jewel of the Bourgogne viticulture, perfectly embodies the elegance and age-old tradition for which the wines of this prestigious region are renowned. Founded by the Seysses family, this trading and Domaine viticultural house enjoys a rich history and exceptional terroir that contribute to the international reputation of its wines.

The history of Maison Dujac began in 1968, when Jacques Seysses and his wife Rosalind acquired their first parcels of vines at Morey-Saint-Denis, in the heart of the Côte de Nuits en Bourgogne. Jacques, a wine enthusiast of Bordeaux origin, brought with him a fresh take on Burgundian winemaking, while respecting the region's age-old traditions and know-how. Indeed, it is in tribute to Jacques Dujac, Rosalind's grandfather, that the House is named "Dujac", marking a family heritage that endures.

Over the years, the Seysses family has expanded its Domaine by acquiring new parcels in some of the greatest terroirs of Bourgogne. Today, Maison Dujac's Domaine extends over a considerable area of vines, spread over several prestigious appellations such as Morey-Saint-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin, and Vosne-Romanée, to name but a few. Each parcel is carefully selected for its qualitative potential and unique character, illustrating the Seysses family's commitment to producing exceptional wines.

Description Dujac Fils & Père Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru "Aux Cras" 2020.

The Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er cru Aux Cras, lies on a limestone parcel, dominated by surface scree and small pebbles.

During the harvest, the bunches arrive whole at the winery to bring more complexity. They will be more or less destemmed, depending on the vintage and plot of origin, to preserve a silkier feel. Fermentation is triggered naturally by the indigenous yeasts in the grapes. Aging lasts 15 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new. Bottling is by gravity only, without fining or filtration. Finally, the wines are only released after a few months' rest in the cellar.

Complex aromas develop on the nose, blending blackcurrant and blackberry with spices.

The mouth, vigorous and slender, asserts itself around a tight frame and rich, well-coated tannins. A beautiful minerality enhances the whole. The wine will gain in elegance with a few more years, revealing the intensity and purity of the fruit to the full.

A wine that's still a little young, but whose immense potential will enable it to be enjoyed with refined dishes such as pheasant supreme with ceps.
