2019 David Duband Hautes Cotes De Nuits Louis Auguste Bourgogne
This wine – named in honour of David’s son, Louis-Auguste – really sings in 2019. The high altitude combined with some of the domaine’s oldest vines (over 55 years in age) tends to produce a wine of concentration, especially in warm vintages; but this year it’s particularly expressive. It’s exuberant on the nose, with delicate cherry blossom, ripe raspberries and crushed wild strawberries. On the palate, the intensity of ﬂavour is striking, with red berries evolving into earthier, wilder notes of liquorice and hints of white pepper. The wine is balanced and gourmand, with a minerality and freshness appearing on the mid-palate, and iodine notes that lift the finish. A cuvée that never disappoints, it’s clearly outperforming in 2019 – Louis Auguste can rest easy knowing such a superb wine bears his name.
