This is riper than its 2019 counterpart with its dense array of earth, sauvage and dark berry fruit aromas. There is outstanding richness to the reasonably energetic medium-bodied flavors that also conclude in a rustic and mildly austere finale. This is quite good and recommended but at least some patience required. Score: 89, Tasted: Jan 10, 2021, Drink: 2026+ Issue: 81 - Outstanding. - Burghound
How does one of the most vaunted Domaines in Burgundy continue to innovate and change, whilst remaining true to their traditions? In 2000, Jacques Seysses and his son Jeremy launched a new venture that has redefined the role of the negociant. Under the name Dujac Fils et Père, the son/father team established partnerships with some of the top growers in Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey Saint-Denis and Chambolle-Musigny. The resulting wines are among some of the best that Burgundy has to offer. Being negociant fruit, too, they offer outstanding value.
Each wine is made with the same care and attention that the family lavishes on their Domaine Dujac bottlings. Nearly all come from old vines with Jeremy and Jacques controlling the farming methods, yields and harvesting dates. Once at the winery the grapes are crushed, fermented, aged in French oak barrels (up to 50% new) and bottled without filtration whenever possible. As with Dujac’s estate offerings, the essence of these wines is in the pure, accurate, unadulterated presentation of each individual terroir.
