80% whole bunch Very old vines from those purchased from the Louis Remy holdings. "A distinctly cool and ultra-restrained nose of airy floral, wet stone, humus and various red berry scents introduces broad-shouldered and intense but not massive flavors that possess terrific delineation and underlying tension. I really like the focused yet generous mid-palate that firms up substantially on the understated and mineral-driven finish that displays a bit of austerity but less than say the Clos del la Roche. In sum this is a classic Latricières that combines good power with finesse. (91-94)/2024+” Burghound.com April 2014
“..if 2012 is some rough combination of 2009 and 2010, then 2013 is like a riper and better balanced 2008 or perhaps a less powerful and more approachable 2010.” Burghound.com January 2015
Regarded as one of the rising stars of Burgundy, David Duband took over his family domaine a very young age and now has more than 20 vintages of experience behind him. Starting with very small family holdings David, together with his business partner Francois Feuillet, have added to his portfolio of wines through the purchase of some exceptional old Grand cru vineyards throughout Gevrey Chambertin and Morey St Denis.
In recent years David has adapted his work in both the vineyards and cellars and in the last few years is producing wines with not only remarkable finesse and detail but also exhilarating intensity and freshness. Working organically in the vineyards and with low levels of S02 in the cellar he also uses a relatively high percentage of whole bunch ferment and a low percentage of new oak for ageing and this is adapted to each wine as it needs. This results in wines of striking purity with fabulous depth and intensity without sacrificing the details of the origins of each parcel of grapes. These are wines showing terroir and the soil signature of the fruit for each parcel above all else. These are wines that are built to age classically and gracefully.
