    A Fruit-Forward David Duband Wine from Burgundy

    In 1991, David Duband took over from his father a 37-acre vineyard on the western slopes of Hautes-Côtes de Nuits in Burgundy, which was mostly being used to grow fruit for a local cooperative. Duband was determined to make his own wines and throughout the years he slowly expanded his collection. Duband now produces a wide range of organic wines from 42 acres, divided into 23 appellations. The vines of David Duband are farmed organically and the wines certified by Ecocert. The David Duband Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru "Clos Sorbe" 2016 is a Burgundy red wine made from 100% Pinot Noir from vines around 50 years old on average, growing on an east-facing Premier Cru vineyard with Bathonian limestone soils. The grapes are harvested manually and then vinified with a significant portion of whole clusters. After 17 days of vatting and pressing, the wine is transferred to oak (40% new oak barrels and the rest oak of 1, 2 or 3 previous vintages), where it ages for 14 months. Finally, it spends 3 months in tanks before being bottled. The Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru "Clos Sorbe" 2016 by David Duband is not fined or filtered before bottling.

    The David Duband Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru "Clos Sorbe" 2016 is a gorgeous Burgundy Pinot Noir, presenting in the glass a crystal clear cherry-red color. Red berries and black berries (black raspberries) dominate the nose, which is further enhanced by delicate touches of spice (black pepper) and beautifully integrated oak. This is a very elegant and complex wine, with rather strong tannins (in its youth) and a long, spicy finish. A wine ready to be opened now, but that can also be aged until 2033. This David Duband Burgundy wine will pair remarkably well with a wide range of dishes, including aged beef, boar stew or mushroom fettuccine.
