About the Winery:
In 2000 Jeremy and Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac launched a new venture that redefined the role of the négociant. Under the name Dujac Fils et Père, the son/father team established partnerships with some of the top growers in Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey Saint-Denis and Chambolle-Musigny. They also continued to work with the growers in Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet with whom they had relationships under their Druid Wines label.
The resulting Dujac Fils et Père wines are among the best that Burgundy has to offer. Each wine is made with the same care and attention that the family lavishes on their Domaine Dujac bottlings. Nearly all come from old vines with Jeremy and Jacques controlling the farming methods, yields and harvesting dates. Once at the winery the grapes are crushed, fermented, aged in 50%-new French oak barrels and bottled without filtration whenever possible. As with Dujac’s estate offerings, the essence of these wines is in the pure, accurate, unadulterated presentation of each individual terroir.
Ratings & Reviews
" A unique wine, with darker blackberry fruit, hints of spice on the nose and a firm, grippy texture that would repay mid-term cellaring - a standout in the regional appellation in this vintage. Ostrea is produced from a patch of old vines in Gevrey near the border with Brochon. The parcel was originally planted in 1919 and averages 90 years of age with vine replacements. This is an exceptional Gevrey village. 'Ostrea' refers to the generous inclusions of fossilised oyster shells in the clay and limestone soils. (Drink between 2025-2040)" - Charles Curtis (Nov 2021)
90-92 Points - Vinous Media:
" The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Cras 1er Cru has a well-defined bouquet with lightly-spiced red berry fruit, just a touch of iris petal and loamy. The palate is medium-bodied with good concentration, white pepper and clove infusing the dark berry fruit, just a hint of black olive on its saline finish. This is a classy Nuits Saint-Georges. (Drink between 2025-2036)" - Neal Martin (Dec 2021)
