2020 David Duband Côte de Nuits Villages, Burgundy, France


The fruits are darker and more subtle than the higher tones that are easy to find in some of his other wines. It exhibits more mineralic impressions in the palate with a gentle, gritty mouthfeel. It’s a low frequency wine with charming and delicious aroma and taste. It is exceptional for this kind of appellation wine to find this level of depth and complexity.

There are 10 units left in stock.



This wine is sourced from Brochon, an appellation sandwiched between Gevrey-Chamberin and Fixin. Within David’s elegant range of wines, this is often more plush and weighted. 


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 a 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, has 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 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.
