Winemaker Notes

Aromas of black/red cherry, red plum, light licorice and spice notes. Fine-grained tannins, medium-bodied; light pepper.

Critical Acclaim

BH 94
Burghound.com
Slightly more obvious wood treatment frames the notably spicier and floral-infused aromas of both red and dark currant along with a hint of tea. The velvety, concentrated and sappy flavors are more refined as well as more powerful while the impressively persistent finish is shaped by ripe tannins. This is quite firm but not rustic and I particularly like the balance here.
Barrel Sample: 91-94
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Echezeaux Grand Cru exhibits aromas of dark berries, baking chocolate, grilled squab, Asian spices and a subtle framing of toasty new oak, followed by a full-bodied, ample and expansive palate with a nicely layered, concentrated core, juicy acids and fine structuring tannins. Fifty percent of the crop was lost to spring frosts, so it's no surprise that the wine is deeper and more intense than the 2017 rendition.
D 93
Decanter
The Echezeaux (where yields were down by 50%) is quite flattering this year, with an expressive nose of rose petal, red and black fruit, coniferous forest floor and an elegant framing of new oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, ample and expansive, with a sweet core of fruit and good depth.

Subtle, harmonious, supple—Burgundy from Domaine Anne Gros is intimately tied with the elegant and poised character of wines from Vosne-Romanée. While each cru faithfully reflects its terroir, it is terroir as translated through Gros’ expert touch, offering richer aromatics, rounder curves, silkier tannins. The combination is irresistible, so much so that Gros’ very limited production is snapped up by global collectors faster and faster each vintage. Anne Gros simply is one of the top winemakers in Burgundy today, which explains why her wines have inspired such a cult-like following. Importantly for us, Gros personifies the sort of winemaker with whom we have always sought to work: an artisan with a clear vision of her terroir and talents, and the grace to be humble despite the weight of Burgundian tradition and family history. Anne Gros took over her father’s winery (Domaine François Gros) in the late 1980s. Yet there have been Gros family members in Vosne since the 1830s; land holdings have split among family members for generations. Today, there are four separate wineries in Vosne owned by the extended Gros family, including Domaine Anne Gros: Gros Frere et Soeur, Anne-Francoise Gros and Michel Gros, all of whom are Anne’s cousins.

Flagey-Echezeaux Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

Claiming the two famous Grand Crus, Echezeaux and Grands Echezeaux, the identity of this village, Flagey-Echezeaux, rides predominantly on the glory of those two crus. All of the village or Premier Cru status vineyards in Flagey-Echezeaux market themselves under the name of their neighbor, Vosne-Romanée.

Echezeaux Pinot noir tends be light, bright and full of finesse, whereas those of Grands Echezeaux typically have more heft and complexity.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
