Echézeaux touches the famous vineyards of Vosne-Romanée to the south and the Vougeot appellation to the north. Echézeaux covers 93 acres of prime terroir for Pinot Noir and great Burgundies. It is one of only thirty-three Grand Crus in Burgundy, producing some of the most treasured wines in the world.
This particular wine is a famous appellation from the Côte de Nuits, well known for its great red wines with long keeping potential. This is a Grand Cru appellation located in the territory of Flagey-Echezeaux, close to Vosne-Romanée. Echezeaux covers 93 acres.
Fine dark color with ruby reflections. Aromas of spices and cherries. A silky structure with a mellow touch of oak.
"Meaty and youthful; scents of cherry, bacon fat and cedar box. More forthcoming in the mouth; bold black fruit and silky texture, the preferred markers for this appellation.
The Wine News
"A muscular, sinewy red, with a lot of tannins cloaking the cherry, spice and mineral flavors. There’s a good deal of sweet fruit, and it needs to absorb the oak. Be patient. Best from 2007 through 2015."
After reading an article about Echezeaux and the surrounding areas, I was drawn to this bottle to try. Very wonderful, with bold fruit and a dry finish. The wine evolved over the period of drinking and created new experiences each time. We enjoyed this very much.
