2019 David Duband Latriciers Chambertin Grand Cru
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.
An even cooler and more high-toned nose offers up a plethora of red berry scents that include hints of pungent earth, floral wisps and discreet but not invisible wood. There is fine richness to the solidly concentrated flavors that evidence plenty of minerality though the tangy, warm and somewhat woody finish is somewhat awkward today. Note that my projected range assumes that this eventually harmonizes. Drink 2036+.
