Domaine Dujac
Morey Saint Denis, Burgundy, France

When Jacques Seysses founded Domaine Dujac in 1967 with his father, Louis, his vision was to blend modern techniques with what he admired in traditional winemaking, while refining a style he could call his own. In his nearly 50 years in Burgundy, he has built a reputation for being a winemaker that is youthful in spirit and passionate about quality. The past few years have seen the arrival of the next generation of Seysses, as both Jacques and his wife Rosalind have begun to cede control to their oldest son, Jeremy (who assists with winemaking), and Jeremy’s wife, Diana Snowden Seysses (who is in charge of the cellar and laboratory). Additionally, Alex, Jacques and Rosalind’s second son, has taken over administrative duties.

In the vineyard, manager, Lilian Robin, has continued the enormous ongoing effort to incorporate biodynamic farming that was initiated at the domaine in the mid-1980s by the late Christophe Morin. To this end, no herbicides or insecticides have been used since 1986 and other viticultural practices are under constant review. Jacques describes Dujac’s commitment to the environment by saying, ‘‘we are biodynamic, but I try not to make too much of it – we will certainly never be putting our organic status on the bottles. It’s just about good winemaking.”

While the family clearly welcomes innovation, their investment in quality is also steeped in tradition. Specifically, they attempt to intervene as little as possible with Mother Nature. In the cellar, this translates to minimal destemming and reducing the need for sulphur by using a generous percentage of new French oak, which imparts a long, slow oxygenation to young wine and leaches out wine-stabilizing tannins. In the end, Dujac’s wines have a unique style that, depending on the vintage, may be lighter or richer, but are always complex and wonderfully silky smooth on the palate.

Chambers & Chambers and Domaine Dujac have a long and intimate history, as we have been importing every vintage they have released to the U.S. since their first from 1969.
