A pretty and quite airy nose reflects mostly notes of various red berries and floral nuances. The sleek, intense and subtly mineral-inflected lighter weight flavors possess a refreshing and bright finish that should enable this to drink well young and with a few years of age

Burgundy’s Rising Star!

In 1991 David Duband took over about 50 acres of vineyards from his father in the hills above the escarpment of the Cote d’Or, known as the Hautes-Cotes de Nuits. Since then his trajectory as rising star in Burgundy has continued steadily on a fast track. The Wine Spectator called him “A Modern Success in Burgundy.” And Daniel Johnnes said of him, “"David Duband is quickly becoming a force in Burgundy…. A tasting in his cellar is also a study in terroir as one can compare an amazing array of appellations.” A talented winemaker in his own right, part of his success stems from landing the lead winemaker position with motor-home mogul François Feuillet, a Burgundy lover who snapped up a vast array of prized vineyards in the 1990’s including Chambolle-Musigny, Charmes-Chambertin and the historic Clos de la Roche. Truly a winemaker’s dream to work these highly acclaimed vineyards, David Duband has honed and crafted his skill with some of the best terroirs in Burgundy. Back at the Hautes-Cotes de Nuits, the grapes for this bottling represent some of his family’s oldest vines that were planted in the 1970’s. With a light-reflecting ruby red color and a pretty nose of red berries, wet violet leaf and forest floor, on the palate it is generously fruited and elegant. A broad swath of red fruit flavors coat the mouth, followed by a touch of licorice, a hint of black plum and a dash of spice. A good indicator of the special nature of this wine? David Duband named this wine in honor of his son, Louis Auguste.
