David Duband Nuits Saint Georges Premier Cru "Les Pruliers" 2019

79 JD

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.

Pruliers are often associated with Pinot Noirs, which are robust and made for cellaring. This 2019 stays faithful to this reputation. The Pinot Noir Grapes are manually collected, sorted out, and converted into wine with 80 % in whole grape harvests. After the pressing, wines are aged in a combination of new and old oak barrels giving power and finesse.
