The vines grown for David Duband’s Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru are 85 years old on average and planted on marly, iron-rich, stony soil with an east facing exposure. The wine is produced with meticulous care and has a sublime dark red colour with bluish highlights. Its nose has very distinctive dark fruit aromas while the palate is rich and intense with a toasty, and slightly roast, finish. The tannins are particularly exquisite.
The domaine was founded in 1991 by the businessman François Feuillet, the owner of the Trigano brand which is known for its caravans and trailers. He fell in love with the region and entrusted the development of the wines to David Duband, who had already harvested grapes for the cooperative of Beaune. The domaine is spread over 17 hectares, including Nuits-Saint-Georges, Vosne-Romanée, Clos-de-la-Roche and Charmes-Chambertin. All the ingredients are combined to perfect the classicism of Burgundy: the domaine is certified as organic and, in 2008, the choice was made to vinify non-destemmed grapes. Since 1991, the winemaker has evolved much in the style of his wines which have gained in precision and elegance. They are now one of the greatest wines of Côte d'Or and are on the menus of most French three star Michelin Guide restaurants.
