Between Vosne-Romanée and Flagey-Echézeaux there are seven grands crus, arguably the greatest of the Côte d'Or, whose names are synonymous with rarity and costliness. La Tâche, a vineyard of 14.98 acres, Romanée- Conti, with 4.46 acres, and La Romanée, a tiny parcel of 2.09 acres, all lie in Vosne-Romanée and are all solely-owned vineyards of single proprietors who have long produced and commercialized the totality of their production. Le Richebourg, covering 20 acres, and Romanée-Saint-Vivant, with 23 are in Vosne-Romanée, and are separated from the Flagey-Echéaux border by the premier cru of Les Suchots.
Grands-Echézeaux and Echézeaux are in Flagey-Echézeaux and cover, respectively, 22.5 and 93 acres. While Grands-Echézeaux is a single "climat," Echézeaux covers eleven vineyard sites clustered around Grands- Echézeaux. Grands-Echézeaux may take the Echézeaux appellation, but not vice-versa. Grands- Echézeaux borders Clos Vougeot along its west, and despite the proximity of vineyards known for the delicacy of their wines, it is typically a big, powerful wine. Maison Louis Jadot vinified the production of vineyards in the commune to yield a wine of considerable dimension, with intense berry flavors and an aromatic bouquet brought together in a full, complex structure of great balance and completeness.
