100% Pinot Noir
In 2000 Jeremy and Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac launched a new venture that redefined the role of the négociant. 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. They also continued to work with the growers in Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet with whom they had relationships under their Druid Wines label.
The resulting Dujac Fils et Père wines are among the best that Burgundy has to offer. 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 50%-new French oak barrels 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.
The 2018 fruit - gorgeous fruit from a stellar vintage - for the Dujac Gevrey-Chambertin shows raspberry and rose petal notes. Great lift with bright cherry and hints of dark chocolate. The whole bunch clusters show a lovely lacy quality, long finish and rustic quality that a welcome element in this stunning vintage.
