From: Burgundy, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
The 2019 vintage is a terrific success for Domaine Dujac. Perfumed, concentrated and vibrant, with beautifully refined tannins and bright fruit tones despite the warmth and sunshine of the vintage, I'd be happy to own any or all of the cuvées reviewed here. ...Of course, readers will be familiar with the outlines of the Dujac approach to producing red Burgundy: organic farming, fermentation in (for the most part) concrete vats with a predominance of whole clusters and élevage in barrels largely sourced from Tonnellerie Rémond. Since Jeremy Seysses took the reins from father Jacques in 2001, there have been evolutions: Inspired by Christophe Roumier, Jeremy seeks to retard malolactic fermentation, he's tried retaining more lees, and there were experiments with leaving the wines unracked throughout their élevage. In the last handful of years, everything appears to have fallen into place in what might be called the contemporary Dujac style, and the few vintages have been, to my palate, especially successful." –William Kelley The Wine Advocate
"The wine is currently showing some reduction, blackcurrant leaf style, which only appeared in August. Super suave fruit behind and without any grainy tannins, this wine will throw off its reduction and be a beauty. Very long finish with extremely stylish fruit." –Jasper Morris, 93 points (tasted a barrel sample)
"A ripe combination features notes of plum, spice and pretty violet and lavender nuances. There is both good detail and vibrancy while offering good length if only average depth at present. In sum, this is certainly attractive but not deep." –Burghound.com, 91 points (tasted a barrel sample)
"The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Village is brighter and more ethereal than its Morey counterpart, mingling aromas of cassis, rose petals, red berries and spices in an inviting bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, bright and lively, it's vibrant and mineral, with a inviting core of fruit and powdery structuring tannins." –William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 91 points (tasted a barrel sample)
