The History and Significance of Domaine Dujac

Founded in 1968 by Jacques Seysses, Domaine Dujac holds a rich history and profound significance in the world of winemaking. Despite not being born in Burgundy, Jacques' unwavering passion for wine led him to pursue his true vocation. Influenced by his father, a connoisseur with a deep love for fine wines, Jacques developed an early appreciation for the art of winemaking, often accompanied by his father in the presence of renowned winegrowers.

A New Chapter Begins

At the age of 25, Jacques decided to transition away from the business world after spending a few years working for the family-owned biscuit manufacturing company. During the 1966 and 1967 harvests, he seized the opportunity to learn the craft of winemaking under the guidance of Gérard Potel at the esteemed Domaine de la Pousse d'Or in Volnay. In 1968, he acquired the Domaine Graillet in Morey-Saint-Denis, which he ingeniously renamed Domaine Dujac—a playful wordplay on his first name, signifying the Estate owned by Jacques. It was during this time that he also married Rosalind, who swiftly became an integral part of the team.

A New Generation Takes the Reins

In 1998, Jacques and Rosalind's son Jeremy Seysses joined them at the estate, marking the beginning of a new chapter. Three years later, Jeremy's wife Diana followed suit, bringing her expertise to further enhance the family's winemaking legacy. In 2003, Jeremy's brother Alec joined the team, solidifying the trio as the new generation entrusted with the estate's destiny, all under the watchful guidance of Jacques and Rosalind. Committed to upholding the same unwavering commitment to quality as their predecessors, they have dedicated themselves to the development of the vineyard, employing responsible vineyard techniques that culminated in the estate's organic farming certification in 2011.

A Journey of Expansion and Excellence

Domaine Dujac's vineyard, which initially encompassed a modest 5 hectares in 1968, has steadily expanded over the years, attaining greater dimensions. By 1977, the estate had grown to cover 11 hectares, and in 2005, it reached an impressive 15.5 hectares. Embracing a vision beyond the historic site of Morey-Saint-Denis, the estate's journey led to the acquisition of leased vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet in 2014. With this expansion, the Domaine now produces exceptional wines in both Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, including the Premier Crus Folatières and Combettes.
