Domaine Dujac Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2020

Product description

Louis Seysses, biscuit manufacturer and gastronome, had a taste for good food and fine wines. His son Jacques Seysses quickly came to share his father's passion, and he decided he would not only like to drink the wine but make it as well. 

His style is influenced by his great respect for Burgundy's terroir. His complete trust in the terroir means he tries interfere as little as possible in order to allow the fruit to fully express itself and its origins. Burgundy made great wines far before the arrival of oenology and modern equipment.

The fruit for this wine comes from vineyard parcels that lie approximately 886 feet to 919 feet in elevation in Mazoyeres-Chambertin and the upper portion of Charms. Grapes are sourced from two adjoining climats: Aux Charmes and Mazoyeres ou Charmes.

96 Points - Decanter

The mostly whole-cluster fruit is fermented with a very gentle extraction to produce this surprisingly dark wine, with impressive blackberry and plum fruit scented with peonies. On the palate the wine is firmly tannic, with surprising density and extract that lead to a pleasantly persistent finish. Lovely. 

93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2020 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is one of the chunkier, more muscular wines in the range. Revealing aromas of raspberries, cassis, exotic spices, orange rind and loamy soil, it's full-bodied, deep and tightly wound, with lively acids, youthfully chewy tannins and a long, floral finish.
