Regarded as one of the rising stars of Burgundy, David Duband took over his family domaine (Hautes Cotes de Nuits located just west of Nuits-St-George at altitudes up to 400 metres) at very young age and now has more than 20 vintages of experience behind him. Starting with very small family holdings David with his business partner Francois Feuillet, have added to his portfolio of wines through the purchase of some exceptional old Grand cru vineyards throughout Gevrey Chambertin and Morey St Denis.
David has adapted his work in both the vineyards and cellars and in the last few years and is producing wines with not only remarkable finesse and detail but also exhilarating intensity and freshness. Working organically in the vineyards and with low levels of S02 in the cellar he also uses a relatively high percentage of whole bunch ferment and a low percentage of new oak for aging and this is adapted to each wine as it needs. This results in wines of striking purity with fabulous depth and intensity without sacrificing the details of the origins of each parcel of grapes. These are wines showing terroir and the soil signature of the fruit for each parcel above all else. These are wines that are built to age classically and gracefully.
15 barrels from 2 plots of vines located in “Les Barreaux” (about 90% of the blend) which borders Grand cru Richebourg and the great 1er cru Cros Parantoux, high on the slope above the village and from “Aux Ormes” (about 10% of the blend) which lies on the northern side of the village and further down-slope from Romanee St Vivant. Exceptional complexity and depth for villages level and will age superbly. ”A markedly spicier dark berry fruit nose replete with floral nuances that include violet and rose petal, are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The rich and attractively textured medium weight flavors possess a more refined mouthfeel if less power on the delicious, stylish and youthfully austere finish that firms up noticeably. This too is worthy of your interest.” Burghound
