Domaine Dujac Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts 2016 was purchased in its original cases.
Domaine Dujac is one of Burgundy's finest domaines. Acquired by Jacques Seysses in 1967, and today now comprises 28 acres in appellations including Charmes-Chambertin, Clos de la Roche, Clos St-Denis, Bonnes-Mares, and Echézeaux.
Jacques Seysses' approach is one of non-intervention, as he says: "Use knowledge and technology to counter accidents - for example, bad weather - but, if all is going well, don't interfere". Wise words indeed. Dujac's wines are neither filtered nor fined and noted for their exceptional fragrance, structure and longevity. Since 2012 Dujac has been certified as organic.
"The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts actually has a similar bouquet to the Les Beaux Monts but with heightened mineralité which is prioritized over the fruit. I was momentarily whisked back to my youth, pot-holing in the Lake District, that tang of limestone and moorland in the air. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin. As Alec Seysses remarked, there is more “wine” in the Malconsorts compared to the Beaux Monts. It has brilliant delineation and a very complex finish that fans out with real confidence. This is one of the top wines from Dujac. Chapeau." robertparker.com
