David Duband Nuits Saint Georges 2015
David Duband lives by the philosophy of 'In the pursuit of Balance and the Truth of the Burgundian Terroir .' The wines are distinctive and elegant, with aromas of flowers and spices, finesse and power, delicacy and intensity. This is what David Duband hopes for in his wines. In Chevannes, in the heart of the Hautes-Cotes de Nuits, where the winery is located, the talk is not of color nor tannins. The goal is not to intellectualize the wine but rather to obtain wines that are capable of transmitting the complexity of the different "climats” of Burgundy such as Nuits-Saint-Georges, Vosne-Romanée, Chambolle-Musigny, Morey-Saint-Denis or Gevrey-Chambertin.
This gorgeous Nuits is made from 50 year old vines, with eastern exposure and soils of marly limestone. Grapes are manually collected, sorted out, and converted into wine with 80 % in whole grape cluster. During 17 days of vatting, between pigeages 5 - 7 in feet are practiced, as well as reassemblies. After the pressing, wines are cleaned out during 2 weeks and put in barrels. The breeding is made for 40 % in new barrels and 60 % in barrels of 1, 2, 3 years. After 14 months of breeding wines are taken away in tank during 3 months and bottled without filtration and sticking.
Look for aromas of black and red fruits with a dominance of strawberries and white pepper. The mouth is rich and supported by very full yet fine tannins.
"David Duband is quickly becoming a force in Burgundy. His production is increasing thanks to the purchase of the Truchot estate in Morey-Saint-Denis, acquiring some of the best appellations of the Côte de Nuits many of which are Grand Crus. His infectious smile and warmth make him one of the nicest and easiest winemakers to work with. A tasting in his cellar is also a study in terroir as one can compare an amazing array of appellations." —Daniel Johnnes
