Jacques Seysses has made an exceptional achievement by taking only about half a century to turn Domaine Dujac into one of the most outstanding domaines in Burgundy. He set up Domaine Dujac in 1967 when he purchased a small domaine in Morey-St-Denis, which the domaine has since expanded and nowadays covers around 15 hectares in Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, and Vosne-Romanee. The Domaine was a pioneer to include stems during fermentation and most of the vineyards are farmed using organic practices. In recent years the style of their wines has become deeper in color, fruit-forward with charming and intense fragrance as well as velvety silkiness. Till this day, the Domaine is still managed by the Seysses family by Jacques's eldest son Jeremy and wife Diana.
Today we have a range of vintages from Dujac Vosne-Romanee Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru which includes 2011, 2013, 2017 and 2018. This is an interesting wine in that Aux Malconsorts is blended with their tiny parcel in Les Gaudichots which borders La Tache Grand Cru, and they put all the grapes from Gaudichots into their Aux Malconsorts; and in terms of prices, Dujac's Aux Malconsorts is in a great position for collecting as it is scored similarly by Vinous with the top producer of Aux Malconsort - Sylvain Cathiard - but at a fraction of their prices (see comparison table below) -

Domaine Dujac Vosne Romanee Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru 2011
HK$3,600 per bottle, 6 bottles available
ETA 4-6 weeks
94pts Antonio Galloni
The 2011 Vosne-Romanée Aux Malconsorts is mid-weight, gracious and absolutey impeccable in its balance. Sweet tobacco, mint, red stone fruits, dried cherries and orange peel are some of the notes that inform the Malconsorts. Pliant and expressive on the palate, with highly expressive floral overtones, the Malconsorts is a gorgeous wine in 2011 and just as impressive at it was from barrel.
Domaine Dujac Vosne Romanee Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru 2013
HK$3,450 per bottle, 6 bottles available
ETA 4-6 weeks
94pts Neal Martin
The 2013 Vosne-Romanée Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru is actually more immediate and pleasurable than its 2012 counterpart at the moment: vigorous red berry fruit intermingled with orange pith and crushed stone. It is not as complex as say, the 2010, but it conveys a feeling of just wanting to give pleasure. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannin intertwined with a fine thread of acidity. There is a mixture of red and black fruit, a hint of spice and sous-bois that segue into a very harmonious finish. The 2013 is endowed with more weight and concentration than I was expecting. Could it be the dark horse of the Aux Malconsorts thus far? Very impressive
Domaine Dujac Vosne Romanee Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru 2017
HK$3,680 per bottle, 3 bottles available
ETA 4-6 weeks
93-95pts Neal Martin
The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru has a little more intensity on the nose compared to the Les Beaux Monts at the moment, while the fruit is a tad darker. The palate is compact on the entry, linear and strict, with blackberry, raspberry and touches of brine on the sturdy finish. This demonstrates the spine I look for in a Malconsorts. Give it three or four years once in bottle, because it punches at Grand Cru weight.
Domaine Dujac Vosne Romanee Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru 2018
HK$3,780 per bottle, 1 bottle available
ETA 4-6 weeks
95pts Neal Martin
The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru has an extravagant bouquet with brambly red fruit laced with shucked oyster shell and a touch of seaweed. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannins, lightly spiced with a subtle ash-like note towards the composed finish. This has great backbone that should guarantee its longevity. A quintessential Dujac/Malconsorts.
