David Duband Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
David Duband is one of the stars of Burgundy, producing wines of striking intensity made all the more remarkable for their evident finesse. Lots of whole bunch but little new oak, the wine shows a brilliant winemaker yet one who is restrained, even humble, enough to allow the terroir to be the hero.
Vivid coloration ranging from deep ruby to black-cherry. Their aromas suggest strawberry, blackcurrant, and gooseberry as well as fruit pits, liquorice, and spices. Violet, moss and underbrush are also likely to be present. On the palate, power, opulence and elegance unite to make a full and complex body, full of sap and voluptuosness textured. Keeping potential is 10 years minimum. Although these sumptuous Grands Crus share a family resemblance, each has its own distinctive nuances.
