ABOUT THIS WINE
Planted in 1610 from scrubland at an elevation primarily between 853 and 919 feet. It is bordered by the Grand Crus La Tâche and Les Gaudichots ou la Tâche to the north, 1er Cru Les Chaumes to the East, and to the south by 1er Cru Aux Boudots in Nuits-Saint-Georges. Only Pinot Noir is planted.
In the 630 Bèze Chronicle, the village is mentioned as: Villa que Vaona dicitur “the village that they call Vaona”. From the Gallic word Wadna “water” came Vaona. The village was built around a water source called La Fontaine de Vosne. In 1866 the village was allowed to append the name Romanée, an appellation that is found in three Grand Cru climats of the village.
“Mauvais consorts” from Latin Consors “people in a communal estate settlement.” Mal “bad.” Malconsorts is named for a group of people who had an unfriendly settlement over this property.
Purchased from the Thomas-Moillard holdings, the domaine is one of the three largest owners of the vineyard. The vines have been organically farmed since 2001. Made from Pinot Noir grapes grown on soils of clay & limestone. Fermented in stainless steel tanks using naturally occurring yeast. Aged in French barrique, 60-85% new. Aged for 18 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
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.
