Owner/winemaker Jacques Seysses is known for his detail-oriented practices and passion for producing extraordinary Burgundy wines. He came to the region from Paris in 1966 and bought a small wine domaine in 1968 which he named Domaine Dujac. He has always had the greatest respect for the older generation of winemakers in Burgundy, and manages to blend time honored traditional practices with modern methods when he feels they are warranted.

Dujac is known for a steadfast commitment to exuding the unique terroir of Burgundy. Jacques Seysses regularly employs interns from around the world as he is highly receptive to the exchange of winegrowing and winemaking ideas. Jacques' spouse, Rosalind is an American. Their son, Jeremy, is married to American Diana Snowden Seysses, who grew up in the Napa Valley, studied enology at the University of California at Davis, and interned at wineries in California and France. She met Jeremy while they were both working at Robert Mondavi Winery in 1998. Now she is the enologist and cellarmaster for Dujac. Jeremy grew up in Morey-St.-Denis but spent time in California and was educated in England as well as Dijon. Since 1986, the Domaine has pursued a green approach to viticulture and much of the Domaine's vineyards are farmed organically and biodynamically.

BurghoundThis is completely different from the Beaux Monts, particularly in terms of size and weight as there is real muscle to the impressively concentrated and ripe medium-bodied plus flavors that culminate in a hugely long finish that coats the palate with dry extract. The supporting tannins are also markedly firmer and it's clear that this will require around 15 years to completely realize its full, and considerable, potential yet it should be approachable after 10 years or so. In a word, impressive. 92-95
