Our Échezeaux Grand Cru 2017 is a very elegant, complex and energetic red wine. On the nose, intense aromas of wild strawberries, peonies, and saffron appear, as well as notes of animality and sandalwood. The palate reveals perfectly integrated mellow tannins; the finish is long, underlined with notes of fruits, flowers, and spices. With a great aging potential, this grand wine will reach its full potential in several years.
5 to 30 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.
