Region: France - Burgundy

Dujac

Not long after purchasing vineyards in the late 1960s and releasing his first wines in the early 1970s Jacques Seysses became an international icon. Jacques respect for the terroir of the Côte d’Or is still on display in his viticultural practices and innovative winemaking methods. Dujac wines are more than just varietally correct – they are intimate travelogues of some of the most celebrated sites on earth. Sons Jeremy and Alec along with Jeremy’s wife, Diana, have been handed the reigns of this famous estate.

Vineyard Profile

VINEYARD

  • The Puligny Montrachet appelation is in the Côte de Beaune, known for the greatest of the Burgandian whites in and around the Montrachet vineyard.
  • The Les Folatieres vineyard sits between 820 feet to 985 feet of elevation on clay & limestone.
  • The vineyard is divided into four climats: Ez Folatieres, En la Richarde, Peux Bois and Au Chaniot.
  • One suggestion is that the name is derived from folles-terres, crazy earth, created when hard driving rain erodes the soil.  Another suggestion is that Folatières is where folletes, patches of misty fog or ghostly forms collect.
  • Made from organically farmed Chardonnay grapes.
