David Duband Latricieres Chambertin Grand Cru 2019
The quality of David Duband’s wines has steadily advanced since he took over his family’s domaine in 1991. In 1999 he began the move away from conventional farming and achieved organic certification in 2006. In 2005, his friend and business partner, François Feuillet, managed to buy vineyards from Jacky Truchot, which included ideal spots with old-vine parcels in the grand crus, Clos de la Roche and Charmes-Chambertin.
Painters use canvas and paint; David’s medium is limestone, clay, grapes, and oak. His wines transparently demonstrate the slightest differences in each terrior's shade and contour, further revealing each unique nuance of the year and terroir.
The 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.
Duck, Veal and Game Birds.
