Description

Grands-Echézeaux is a grand cru vineyard in the Côte de Nuits, sandwiched between the Echézeaux and Clos de Vougeot Grands Crus. Despite its name (grand means "large" in French), the site is less than one-third the size of its similarly named neighbour. It is, however, generally considered to be a better quality site than Echezeaux, and its wines, made from Pinot Noir, often command higher prices.

Tasting Profile

Nose
With age, the palette tends towards pepper and musk, animal pelts, leather and spices, and prunes. Sometimes the bouquet hints at scents of woodland undergrowth, moss, mushrooms, damp earth, game, fruit preserved in alcohol and mulberries round off this range of aromas. Especially in young wines, one may well encounter scents of pine, dog roses, violets and fresh cherries.
Palate
Peaceful and dreamy, serene with age, subtle and refined, this wine fully reveals the complex nature of a really good Burgundy, all the art that can be achieved through the medium of pinot noir grapes grown on one particular terroir. The structure is outstanding: solid, full-bodied, rich and exceptionally harmonious.
