Domaine David Duband is based in the village of Chevannes,
in the heart of the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits to the west of Nuits-Saint-Georges.
domaine produces wines from 23 prestigious appellations, from
Nuits-Saint-Georges to Gevrey-Chambertin.
When David Duband took over the family domaine in 1991, all
the wine was sold to négociants. At the time, the estate had 20 hectares under
vine: the majority (15 hectares) were situated close to the winery on the hills
of the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits, with the remaining five hectares in
Nuits-Saint-Georges. In 1991 David Duband produced the estate’s first domaine
wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Premier Crus, Aux Thorey
and Les Procès.
During his time managing the estate Duband has been
fortunate enough to expand the domaine’s holdings in the Côte de Nuits,
acquiring some of the most enviable sites. He managed to buy vineyards from the
legendary Jacky Truchot, plots that are considered by many Burgundy aficionados
to be some of the finest sold in the Côte d'Or's modern era. Today he produces
five Grand Cru cuvées (including Chambertin and Latricières-Chambertin) and
seven Premiers Crus.
Impressively the wines of Domaine Duband are
present in 16 of the 25 restaurants with three Michelin stars in France.
