Description

Fresh purple in colour, it’s juicy and pretty on the nose, including some floral notes, with lovely, stylish, elegant red fruit in the mouth, yet with a certain punch behind.

This mini négociant business has been a great source of high quality, inexpensive wine over the last few years, though Jeremy Seysses notes that it is getting harder and harder to source grapes of the right standard, at a price which still makes sense. We applaud their efforts to date and these 2015s, picked between 7th and 11th September, will once again provide delicious drinking before the domaine wines come round.

Burghound88-91/100

Interestingly this is actually a bit more aromatically elegant with its super fresh nose of red cherry, rose petal and lightly spiced aromas. The freshness continues onto the appealingly energetic medium-weight flavours that exude a fine bead of minerality on the more complex and slightly more persistent finale.

Drink from 2022 onward

Wine Advocate90/100

The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis Villages from Domaine Dujac is an excellent rendition of this cuvée, which wafts from the glass with aromas of sweet red berries, cinnamon, warm spices and rose petal. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and quite lavish, structured around fine-grained, satiny tannins and good acids, its finish sapid and long. For now, this Morey remains open and expressive.

Drink 2020 - 2040

Decanter94/100

This wine is from the barrel that I purchased at the Hospices in 2015. The grapes come from Santenots du Millieu and from Les Plures, in the heart of Volnay Santenots, on the slope. In 2015 they produced a wine with concentrated blackberry fruit underscored by plenty of smoke and spice aromas from the cask aging. The influence of the maturation, however, has diminished in recent months, bringing the wine back into a pleasant, if powerful balance, with a solid mineral underpinning, firm tannins, and impressive length.

About this WINE

Dujac Fils et Pere

Dujac Fils et Pere

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.

Morey-Saint-Denis

Morey-Saint-Denis

Morey is sometimes ignored between its two famous neighbours, Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin, but its wines are of equal class, combining elegance and structure. Morey-St Denis, being that little bit less famous, can often provide excellent value.

The four main Grand Cru vineyards continue in a line from those of Gevrey-Chambertin, with Clos St Denis and Clos de la Roche the most widely available. Clos des Lambrays (almost) and Clos de Tart (entirely) are monopolies of the domains which bear the same names.

Domaine Dujac and Domaine Ponsot also make rare white wines in Morey-St Denis.

  • 64 hectares of village Morey-St Denis
  • 33 hectares of Premier Cru vineyards (20 in all). Best vineyards include Les Charmes, Les Millandes, Clos de la Bussière, Les Monts Luisants
  • 40 hectares of Grand Cru vineyard. Clos de Tart, Clos des Lambrays, Clos de la Roche, Clos St Denis and a tiny part of Bonnes Mares
  • Recommended Producers: Dujac, Ponsot, Clos de Tart, Domaine des Lambrays

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy's Côte d'Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climats of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
