THE WINEEchezeaux Grand Cru is known for its great lingering intensity and this 2016 from Duband is certainly no exception. We were struck by its dense powerful nose of black fruits punctuated with notes of white pepper, the finish is complex and constantly developing.
Meticulously made, harvesting by hand and using 80% whole bunches to give a brightness to the wine, this is a serious Burgundy which demands your attention.
THE WINEMAKERDavid’s journey in Burgundy began when his dad Pierre asked him, at the age of 19, whether he wanted to make wine. Soon after, David started working for Francios Feuillet until 1994 when his father retired and passed the baton over to him.
David quickly set about moving over to organic viticulture stopping the use of herbicides in 1999 and becoming Biogro certified in 2006. Taking inspiration from the old wines from great producers, David moved away from the monolithic style often found in the 1990s becoming more refined incorporating whole clusters, 50-90% stems in the winemaking, and gently crushing by foot as not to break the stems.
