Morey Saint-Denis 1er Crü Monts Luisants 2017 - Domaine Dujac
The finesse is the signature of all the wines of the Domaine Dujac. This fantastic Chardonnay from the municipality of Morey Saint-Denis is no exception. Clay and silt soils, classic refinement for at least 15 months in barrique and great elegance and finesse in the mouth. A chardonnay that does not surprise so much for its power, but for its great pleasure.
Founded in 1967 by Jacques Seysses, who transforms a newly acquired property into the Dujac domaine, it is now run together with his sons Jeremy, winemaker, and Alec. The property has 17.30 hectares of which a small part cultivated with chardonnay for an average production of less than 80,000 bottles. Jacques and his son Jeremy (whose wife Diana winemaker works in the domaine) are faithful to a very marked pinot noir through the vinification of whole grapes: the wine obtained rarely has a great color, but after a long aging (even beyond the thirty ' years) tertiary aromas do justice to this winemaking. Dujac style is the search for elegance and finesse with integrated and soft tannins always with balance, harmony, length and complexity. At the base the work in the vineyard, serious and rigorous, where the experience and knowledge of technology can help in the small imperfections of the vintage, but without any tampering. The brothers Alec and Jeremy, continuing in their father's work, are today considered among the best interpreters of the Pinot Noir of the Côte de Nuits and the Domaine Dujac can be fully confirmed as one of the most important Burgundy producers.
