Producer note: Jeremy Seysses describes the 2016 growing season as "one for which we were extremely lucky compared to most other communes as we had very little frost damage in our vines situated in Morey and Vosne. By contrast we lost 30% in Echézeaux and Bonnes Mares and there will be no Gruenchers as we declassified what little we made. Our Fils et Père négoce wines were also hit pretty hard and particularly so in Chambolle. We began picking with our whites on the 21st of September and finished on the 26th and then attacked the reds on the 27th and finally finished with our Fils et Père vines on the 4th and 5th of October. The fruit was for the most part extremely clean with potential alcohols in the 12.5 to 13.5% range. We used on average about 80% whole clusters and chose not to push the extractions. We also dropped the percentage of new wood again, which is to say 20% for the Fils et Père wines, 25% for the villages wines, 50% for the 1ers and about 70% for the grands crus. As to the wines themselves, they remind me of our 2006s somewhat in that they're softer and naturally sweet. In fact, I would describe them as comfortable wines in that they should age on balance rather than extract and tannins." I found the domaine's 2016s to be of very fine quality, which is to be expected. But I was almost as impressed by their now in-bottle 2015s as well and they are worth a special search to find. The 2015s, revisited below, were bottled between January and March 2017. Note further that the 2016 Dujac Fils et Père wines are reviewed immediately below as well.

Tasting note: This is also relatively restrained with its more deeply pitched and gorgeously complex mélange of liqueur-like dark currant, newly turned earth, game, sandalwood and violet aromas. There is excellent mid-palate concentration present on the muscular and powerful big-bodied flavors that possess impressive focus and persistence on the hugely long, robust and very firmly structured finale. This breathtakingly good effort will also require extended cellaring to resolve the prominent tannic spine.
