Tasting notes

Tasting Note The Echezeaux Grand Cru 2015 has a dark ruby colour. It reveals a nose with moka, coffee and amaretto hints. In the mouth it is round and full, with tastes of red crunchy fruits, undergrowth after a summer storm and grilled notes. Tannins are present and mellow. This wine is frank, very elegant with a wonderful persistance.

Viticultural notes

This is a superb vineyard that is situated above Clos Vougeot, between Vosne-Romanée and Vougeot in the Côte de Nuits. It belongs to the era of the Cîteaux Abbey. Echézeaux is an exquisite red wine that is robust, solid and completely harmonious. It is always a great wine to age.
