About David Duband
David Duband is widely regarded as one of Burgandy’s rising stars. He took over his family’s small vineyard at 19 and has gone on to produce more than 20 successful vintages.
Duband and his business partner Francois Feuillet have purchased some exceptional ancient Grand Cru vineyards in and around Gevrey-Chambertin and Morey-Saint-Denis. The pair has created an exceptional portfolio of wines spread across 17 hectares and production is split between the Duband and Feuillet labels.
Duband has adapted his work in the vineyards and cellars to produce highly finessed wines that are also incredibly intense and fresh. He works the vineyards organically and uses low levels of sulphur in the cellar. Duband uses a relatively high proportion of whole bunches during fermentation and prefers to limit the use of new oak for ageing, adapting the approach for each vintage as needed. The wines he produces are pure and elegant, reflecting the authentic expression of each vintage.
Due to his diverse landholdings and diligent local growers, Duband produces wines from a wide variety of appellations. Each is truly representative of their terroir while also displaying the elegance his reputation has been built upon. His beautifully refined Pinot Noirs have complex perfumes as the result of a shift to whole bunch fermentation in 2008.
Many of the region’s top growers hold Duband in high esteem and his reputation only flourishes with every vintage produced.
