Domaine David Duband - Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2020


Regarded as one of the rising stars of Burgundy, David Duband took over his family domaine a very young age and now has more than 20 vintages of experience behind him. Starting with very small family holdings David, together 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.

In recent years David has adapted his work in both the vineyards and cellars and in the last few years 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.

”(from a .65 ha parcel in Mazoyères). This is clearly from Gevrey as the more expressive though still reserved nose flashes plenty of underbrush and sauvage elements on the dark currant and floral-suffused nose. There is equally good volume and richness to the medium-bodied and delicious flavors that culminate in a balanced and hugely long though youthfully austere finish. This is also really very good though unlike the Clos de la Roche, this should be approachable after only a decade.” Burghound
