Domaine Dujac Gevrey-Chambertin 1º Cru Aux Combottes is a single-variety Pinot Noir red wine produced by Domaine Dujac in the AOC Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru/Côte d'Or in Burgundy, France.
Les Combottes is a town located south of Gevrey-Chambertin at the foot of a steep slope that is part of the Luisant mountains. The plots lie at an altitude that ranges from 271 to 282 metres above sea level. The vineyards have different soils: the eastern part has predominantly reddish brown colour soils with limestone and in the west, the soils are rich in small angular limestone gravels. The vineyards also contain some marine organism remains.
The grapes used to make the Domaine Dujac Gevrey-Chambertin 1º Cru Aux Combottes wine come from vines with an average age of 35 years old. The grapes ferment with their native yeasts. The resulting wine is aged in French oak barrels, 30% to 50% of which are new.
Jacques Seysses is the man behind Domaine Dujac, though he does not come from a winemaking family. His love for wine came from his father’s hobby. Seysses bought the Graillet estate in Morey-Saint-Denis in 1968 and renamed it Domaine Dujac. Jacques Seysses works under the philosophy of finding new ways to improve wine through a minimal intervention style but with a lot of thought and experimentation. This is how he produces wines that are as honest and elegant as Domaine Dujac Gevrey-Chambertin 1º Cru Aux Combottes, a tribute to delicacy, complexity and harmony.
