95Wine Spectator

...roses, savage black fruits and spice ...medium- to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a structure that will develop. Long, harmonious finish.

94The Wine Advocate

Full-bodied, super-structured, foursquare, yet velvety-textured character. ...filled with lively cassis, blackberries, brambleberries, and stone-like flavors.

94Vinous / IWC

Silky and palate-caressing, and strong in extract; lovely intensity without excess weight. Oaky, slow-to-build finish leaves a residue of berry and mineral traces.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Flagey-Echezeaux, Echezeaux

Echezeaux is a 93-acre Grand Cru vineyard on the southern edge of the Cote de Nuits. It up the slope from Clos de Vougeot and Grands Echezeaux and is one of the largest grand crus in Burgundy. The vineyard varies in elevation from 250 to 300 meters, and the terroir includes significant clay as well as thin, rocky soil. The largest proprietors are Domaine de la Romanee Conti, with 11.68 acres; Mongeard-Mugneret with 6.25 acres, and Emmanuel-Rouget, with 3.58 acres. Echezeaux produces red wine.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
