The village of Flagey-Échezeaux, home to just 473 people, shares its territory with some of the most famous climats of the Côte de Nuits: Vosne-Romanée, Clos de Vougeot, and Chambolle-Musigny. Its limestone soils are home to two Grand Cru vineyards, Échezeaux and Grands Échezeaux, as well as 3 Premiers Crus.
The limestone soils of the Échezeaux Grand Cru appellation make for excellent Pinot Noir: intense on the nose and palate with beautiful structure and spice—a true representation of the Côte de Nuits.
Our Échezeaux Grand Cru 2018 is a complex Pinot Noir, elegant and full of energy. The nose reveals intense aromas of red fruits, fresh rose, blueberry, and saffron. The palate, with its silky tannins, shows great depth. The remarkable finish evolves with a peppery and minty touch. A great wine for aging, this Côte de Nuits Grand Cru will only reach its peak in the next decade.
Now to 20 years
Separated from famous Clos de Vougeot by a stone wall, Échezeaux is one of the oldest Grand Cru of Côte de Nuits. Its deep soils of pebbles, silt, and marl produce an intense and complex Pinot Noir with very long aging potential. Defined by the monks of the Cîteaux Abbey in the 12th and 13th centuries, it has been legally classified as a Grand Cru since 1937.
