ABOUT THIS WINE
In the 12th century, Morey-Saint-Denis was known as Villa Mirriaca, perhaps the home of a Gallo-Roman named Murricius. Being on the Roman Way from Dijon to Nuits-Saint-Georges, this villa was strongly Romanized. Another interpretation of Mirriaca is that it derives from common Latin Murrum “muzzle, hillock” which designates an accumulation of debris dragged, then abandoned by the glaciers. Another possibility is that Morey was named for rounded mounds of glacier debris in the Morey Heights. In 1927, the commune appended its name to include one of its Grand Cru climats, (Clos) Saint-Denis.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Jacques Seysses started Domaine Dujac in 1968. He was not born in Burgundy, but winemaking is his true vocation. His love for wine comes from his father, a gourmet with a passion for fine wines. Even as a young boy, Jacques would meet the greatest winegrowers of the time in the company of his father.
At the age of 25, after a few years working for the family-owned biscuit manufacturing company, he decided to move on from the business world. During the 1966 and 1967 harvests, he learned winemaking with Gérard Potel at the Domaine de la Pousse d'Or in Volnay. In 1968, 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). In 1973, he married Rosalind, who quickly became a key member of the team.
Jeremy Seysses started working with his parents at the estate in 1998. His wife Diana joined them in 2001, followed by his brother Alec in 2003. Together the three of them are the new generation, watching over the estate's destiny, under the benevolent eye of Jacques and Rosalind. Committed to the same quality approach as their elders, they have sought to develop the vineyard: particularly through responsible vineyard techniques, which among other things led to the certification for organic farming in 2011.
From only 5 hectares in 1968, the estate gradually expanded to 11 hectares in 1977, and then reached 15.5 hectares in 2005. Over the years, the estate has expanded beyond the historic site of Morey-Saint-Denis. In 2014, with the acquisition of leased vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet (the Premier Crus Folatières and Combettes), the Domaine produces wines in both Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune.
