Based at Chevannes, David Duband has recently started making and bottling his own wine from his father's superbly located vineyards in Nuits St. Georges in preference to selling it to the local negociant. This unassuming young man has been in charge of vinification since 1991, and is one of most exciting new discoveries.
Like his great friend Nicolas Potel, David is full of energy and passionate about quality. His wines are characterised by their purity, balance and depth of fruit. His Vosne-Romanées are beautifully textured and possess a silky elegance. However, pride of place goes to his Nuits St. Georges - they are produced from vineyards close to the Vosne border and are rich, complex and well structured. Without doubt one of Burgundy's young stars in the ascendancy. The vines have been farmed organically since 2006, with official certification expected in 2010.
