Chambolle Musigny, Domaine Duband, Burgundy, France 2013
Regular price £72.50
When David Duband took control of his family operation in the late 1990s, he was widely acknowledged as one of Burgundy’s rising stars. Now, 20 years on, he has confirmed his position in the upper echelons of Burgundian winemaking and has also taken the opportunity to add a small selection of exceptional Grand Cru vineyards to his family parcels – most notably in Gevrey Chambertin and Morey St Denis. It would have been easy for David to relax in recent times, with his burgeoning reputation and acquisition of prime vineyard sites. However, he has continued to develop his winemaking skills and in the last couple of years has fully converted to organic viticulture. Furthermore, he now elects to work with extremely minimal levels of added SO2, along with older oak barrels and a tendency to favour whole bunch fermentation. We are delighted to introduce you to these wines that unquestionably deliver striking purity with fabulous depth and intensity without sacrificing the unique origins of each individual parcel.
