Young enologist David Duban is considered one of the fastest growing stars in Burgundy. Almost from the first wines, he established himself as an innovator of Burgundy for his strong and noticeable style, always looking for purity, but not diminishing the intensity and great concentration of wine. David was placed among the modernists, but over the years his “hand” evolved more and more, and the wines became incredibly elegant. David Duban has been making wines since 1991. Starting with a very small estate in Côte de Nuits, he expanded his land by acquiring exceptional old vineyards at Gevrey-Chambertin and More-Saint-Denis. Currently, Duban processes 17 hectares of vineyards exclusively using organic and biodynamic methods, harvests only by hand and uses negligible amounts of sulfur. At the winery a high percentage of grapes are not separated from the ridges, and for aging wines are selected mostly old barrels. The modern style of David Duban winemaking allows you to get wines with exciting intensity and freshness, as well as with pure fruitiness, without sacrificing the interpretation of the origin of each batch of grapes.
