David Duband is regarded as one of the rising stars of Burgundy. He took over his family domaine at a very young age and now has more than 20 vintages of experience behind him. Starting out with small family holdings David, together with his business partner Francois Feuillet, have added to their portfolio of wines through the purchase of some exceptional old Grand cru vineyards throughout Gevrey Chambertin and Morey St Denis, including prime holdings of retiring vigneron Jacky Truchot.

Named in honour of David’s son, Louis-Auguste, this Hautes Cotes de Nuits comes from a high altitude vineyard, and combined with some of the domaine’s oldest vines (over 55 years in age) tends to produce a wine of concentration, especially in warm vintages.

Deep dark red colour with black tinged edges and a dark red hue. Perfumed violet top notes are interwoven with sour to red cherry, winter strawberry, fresh clove, delicate earth and spicy cedar notes. Light to mid weight with a vibrant yet supple feel, the palate is blessed with a savoury flavour profile of sour to red cherry and winter strawberry fruits gently infused with clove over a back drop of subtle cedar, earth and spice. Lively finish with beautifully integrated tannins and a very refined aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
