David Duband 2017 "Les Pruliers" 1er Cru Nuits-Saint-Georges Rouge, Burgundy, France

The quality of David Duband’s wines has steadily advanced since he took over his family’s domaine in 1991. In 1999 he began the move away from conventional farming and became completely certified organic in 2006. In 2005, his friend and business partner, François Feuillet, managed to buy vineyards from Jacky Truchot, which included privileged old-vine parcels in the Grand Crus, Clos de la Roche and Charmes-Chambertin. 

Les Pruliers is the beast—in the context—of David Duband's range of elegant wines and also the most exotic. It comes from a mix of vines planted in the 1950s and 2000s and is located on the south hill of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The soil is composed of hard limestone and heavy clay. When asked why the wines from the south hill are more hard wines by nature, David attributed it to the large and extremely hard stones there. It has been a consistent observation that vineyards with harder stones (and larger stones) tend to make more muscular wines. This characteristic imprint coupled with heavy clay makes for a wine of force and length; believe it or not, the 80% stem inclusion here helps to soften this wine a lot. Aged 14 months in 225l barrels (50% old wood on Grand Cru, 60-70% old wood on all others), racked to steel tanks 2 months before bottling. No fining or filtration.
