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.
The vines higher up the slope grow in a hard limestone base which produces elegant wines. Lower down, the soil is deeper, producing wines that are more powerful.
Aged on the lees for 16 months with no racking using a proportion of 50% new French oak barrels that had been toasted at low temperatures for a long time to impart a very delicate touch of oak to the wine.
Notes of red berries underpinned by a slight touch of pepper.
A very fleshy wine with lovely tannic structure and a velvety finish.
