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
"Blended from just over 0.7ha of vines scattered throughout the village in the lieux-dits of Porroux, Le Village, Clos Solon and Les Herbuottes, this is potently aromatic. Super-dense and concentrated, with lovely dark fruit and length on the palate, where the texture impresses with firm but silky tannins that extend the length forever. Top quality for a village-level wine. Drinking Window 2024 - 2049." –Decanter, 93 points
"The 2019 Morey-Saint-Denis Village shows fine delineation on the nose, traces of dark chocolate and espresso tincturing the dark berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, displaying the backbone you expect from this appellation and with fine salinity and pepperiness towards the finish. Very fine." –Vinous, 89-91 points
"A slightly more deeply pitched nose features notes of poached plum, dark raspberry and newly turned earth. There is very good power to the medium-bodied flavors that conclude in a dusty, delicious and nicely complex finish that flashes a bit of rusticity. A quality villages." –Allen Meadows, Burghound, 88-91 points
