Domaine David Duband - Gevrey-Chambertin 2020


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.

”(80% of the blend comes from Brochon vineyards that include Les Journaux, Les Gueulpines, Les Croisettes and Créot, with the rest from Pince Vin on the Gevrey side). This is also agreeably ripe and fresh with plenty of floral and earth elements on the mix of red and dark currant scents. The bigger and richer medium-bodied flavors possess fine volume and mid-palate density before culminating in a firm, mildly rustic and well-balanced if compact finale. This is a very good Gevrey villages that is worth considering.” - Burghound
