About the Domaine:
Jacques Seysses started Domaine Dujac in 1968 when  he bought the Domaine Graillet in Morey-Saint-Denis, which he renamed Domaine Dujac (a pun on his first name, meaning the Estate that Jacques owns).  This family-owned winery seeks to develop their vineyards through responsible vineyard techniques, which among other things led to the certification for organic farming in 2011.

About the Wine:
The lieu-dit Les Monts Luisants lies northeast of the village of Morey-Saint-Denis, at the top of the slope, where it is very steep (24%). This east-facing lieu-dit varies greatly in altitude, from 311 to 343 meters.

The soil on this hillside is 60 to 80 cm thick, rich in angular limestone gravel in a sandy-silty matrix. The soil is rich in carbonate, and very sensitive to erosion.

The Quaternary substratum of Les Monts Luisants is composed of limestone scree, bedded deposits known as litées grèzes. These angular Comblanchien limestone gravel deposits cover the slope in layers that are sometimes more than ten meters thick.

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"This wine is not what you'd expect from such a hot and dry year, yet the concentration of the grapes concentrated the acidity, too, and the result is a wine of tension and power that should age exceptionally well. No one will blame you, however, for opening a few bottles early. Unlike the white premier cru from Ponsot in this appellation, this is 100% Chardonnay from the 0.6ha Dujac holding. The wine is fermented in tank and aged in used casks. In 2020, the wine took me by surprise with its vibrant, lemony fruit and minerality." - Charles Curtis MW (Nov 2021)

91-93 Points - Vinous Media:

"The 2020 Morey-Saint-Denis Monts Luisants Blanc 1er Cru was picked around midway through the harvest. It has a tightly-coiled bouquet that takes time to open, touches dew-speckled Granny Smiths and pressed white flowers. The palate is fresh and vibrant with fine acidity, very impressive weight with a tangy, tangerine-tinged finish. This might well be my pick from Dujac’s whites this year. Excellent. (Drink between 2023-2036)" - Neal Martin (Dec 2021)

91-93 Points - Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy:
"Pale lemon and lime. The bouquet is refined and crystalline, not showing detail yet. This is beautiful in the mouth with swelling greengage fruit and a citrus twist, a fine long crystalline finish." (Dec 2021)

90-92 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"Cooler and airier aromas reflect notes of green apple, mineral reduction and a broad array of citrus elements that can also be found on the precise and highly energetic, if not especially dense, flavors that terminate in a bone-dry, youthfully austere and chiseled finale. This is certainly attractive in its fashion though it lacks the same class and grace of the Folatières or Combettes. (Drink starting 2026)" (June 2022)
