Tasting Notes:

"Here too there are floral notes on the pretty mélange of both red and dark currant aromas that display background nuances of earth. There is a lush, round and seductive texture to the markedly more complex flavors that delivers very good persistence on the delicious finish where a touch of wood surfaces." AM

Clos de la Roche, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Sentiers, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Procès, Gevrey-Chambertin, Hautes-Côtes de Nuits... The Domaine David Duband lies in Chevannes, in the heart of the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits and produces refined and elegant wines from 23 prestigious appellations from Nuits-Saint-Georges to Gevrey-Chambertin. The estate farms 17 hectares of vines organically, under the strict management of the Ecocert label. The Domaine Duband also buys grapes from a few small vinegrowers who farm with great respect for the vines and of their surrounding environment.

Very difficult vintage that required a great deal of technical precision with respect to the timing and dosages of vineyard treatments. We didn't have the hail problems that befell the Côte de Beaune but the same conditions that created a poor flowering as well as attacks of mildew and oidium affected us as well. I began picking on the 24th of September and brought in very ripe and for the most part very clean fruit that required only minimal sorting.

The skins were quite thick and it seemed clear from the beginning that there would be no problem obtaining plenty of concentration. As such I varied the percentage of whole clusters from 50 to 80% and shortened the total cuvaison slightly to 15 to 17 days.

After pressing, the wine is left to clarify for 2 weeks before being put into barrels (30% new oak barrels and 70% of 1, 2 and 3 year-old barrels). After 14 months in barrel, the wine is racked into tank where it rests for three months before bottling. The wine is neither fined or filtered.
