Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium red. Knockout nose is sauvage and noble at the same time, combining wild red berries, dried flowers and minerals. Suave on entry, then perfumed and sharply delineated in the middle palate, with enticing mineral and floral notes giving the berry flavors superb lift. Finishes very long and aromatic, with terrific spicy length. Very cerebral wine, as good a sample of a wine not vinified by Lardiere as I tasted here in November. Lardiere told me Jadot began buying from a second supplier of Grands-Echezeaux in 2003, and this estate uses Jadot's barrels. (Readers may recall that the 2003 Grands-Echezeaux was a knockout.). 91-94"
