2013 Pinot Noir (Vosne Romanee)David Duband
Regarded as one of the rising stars of Burgundy, David Duband took over his family domaine a very young age and now has more than 20 vintages of experience behind him. Starting with very small family holdings David, together with his business partner Francois Feuillet, have added to his portfolio of wines through the purchase of some exceptional old Grand cru vineyards throughout Gevrey Chambertin and Morey St Denis.
15 barrels from 2 plots of vines located in “Les Barreaux” (about 90% of the blend) which borders Grand cru Richebourg and the great 1er cru Cros Parantoux, high on the slope above the village and from “Aux Ormes” (about 10% of the blend) which lies on the northern side of the village and further down-slope from Romanee St Vivant. Exceptional complexity and depth for villages level and will age superbly. “While this is also notably floral there is a much broader range of spice elements present on the elegant nose of raspberry, violet and pomegranate aromas. The suave, round and succulent medium weight flavors possess plenty of mid-palate stuffing before terminating in a rich if ever-so-mildly austere and firm finish that delivers excellent length for a villages level wine. Recommended. (89-91)/2020+” Burghound.com January 2015
