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. The Domaine owns about 37 acres primarily premier cru and grand cru vineyards.

BurghoundThere is just enough reduction present to mask the fruit though it does seem ripe. Otherwise there is excellent freshness and vivacity to the sleek and silky middle weight flavors that are focused and mildly austere on the linear finish. This is going to require a few years of bottle age to flesh out and add depth. 89-91

VinousMusky aromas of black cherry, brown spices and smoky soil tones; more aromatic today than the Chambolle villages. Sweet and harmonious but also juicy and firmly built, showing more flavor definition than the Chambolle. Finishes with good spine and persistence. 88-90

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Morey-Saint-Denis Rouge Village has a straightforward bouquet with blackberry and boysenberry scents. The palate is well balanced with chalky tannin, a touch of cassis come through with a correct and linear, quite saline finish that lacks a little body. This is very...Morey, and that's a good thing. Drink over the next 3-4 years.
