Starting with the 2000 vintage, Jeremy Seysses set up a negociant business with his father Jacques in order to make attractive and well-priced wine from their own village Morey-St. Denis, supplemented by a wine each from Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny. The involvement of Jeremy at the Domaine has encouraged a gentle evolution in style, though the core Dujac principles of elegance and intensity remain firmly in place. The wines retain their characteristic smokiness in youth which develops into an ethereal leafy quality with age. An excellent source for good value Burgundy.

This is the 11th vintage of the mini negociant part of the Dujac operation, set up to supply attractive, affordable village wines from Morey-St Denis and its neighbours. As in many other cellars, there has been a slight reduction in the amount of new oak used. It is now about 40% for these wines. Team Dujac also tend to use fewer stems in the vinification for these wines compared to their domaine bottlings.
The volumes in 2013 are down on 2012 for both Domaine Dujac and the Fils & Père operation. Picking began on 30th September, finishing on 8th October. Jeremy vinified with 75-to-80% stems for the Fils & Père wines which will be bottled in December 2014. His brother Alec notes that it is not getting any easier to source quality grapes but there are some fresh ideas in the pipeline.
The small-scale négoçiant business of the Seysses family offers excellent value, especially given the sought-after nature of the appellations of the Côte de Nuits these days. The wines are made broadly in the same style as the domaine wines, albeit with a little less new oak and fewer stems, and they tend to be accessible earlier. Their range of 2012s is surely as good as they have ever made.
