Produced on the commune of Flagey-Echézeaux, this grand red cru is one of Burgundy's most famous and noble wines. With a total area of more than 8 hectares, the Grands Echezeaux is only located on Flagey-Echézeaux.


A clear ruby dress pure, bright and deep, intense red, with many shades, from garnet to purple. Of course variations will take place during aging.

An incredibly complex nose: the palette is geared towards pepper and musk, fur, leather and spices, prune.

The persistence in the mouth is simply exceptional. Dazzlingly structured, it is solid, full-bodied, rich and always has a lot of harmony. A very classy wine, a dense texture and an aristocratic elegance.

Harvest entirely manual, oak casking aging of which. 100% new barrels! The Grands Echezeaux is one of the few great crus that allows the use of all new futs thanks to the richness and concentration of the wine.

Like most Burgundy Grand Crus, it will benefit from being opened after several years of guarding.

Grands Echezeaux

Wine Characteristics

Red: its colour is ruby, shading towards the darker tones of magenta and purple. Its bouquet is redolent of animal, spice notes, underbrush, and prune, evolving with age towards musk, leather, fur and mushroom. When young, its aromas suggest rose, violet and fresh cherry. On the palate, there is a heightened attack and an agreeable balance between supple tannins and fully-rounded flavour. The dense texture and tight grain of these wines fully open after 4-5 years in the cellar.

Wine Steward’s Tip

Wines so powerful and full demand to be matched with dishes of the samecalibre. Virile, four-sided tannins cry out for roast lamb, rib steak, or joints of game. Autumn and winter dishes in the right setting match the profound and meaty personality of these great wines: braised beef or pork, for example, or any other good red meat. Fine, whole-milk, soft-centred cheeses will also do them proud.
Serving temperature: 15 to 16°C.
 

Situation

The wine-growing village of Flagey-Échezeaux lies in the plaine, so-called, between Vougeot and Vosne-Romanée in the Côte de Nuits. Facing east, the Grands-Échezeaux vines are a prolongation of Musigny following the North-South axis of the Côte, but more regular and less broken in their layout. At the bottom end, the Climat known as La Combe d’Orveau separates them from Musigny. The Échezeaux vineyards, for their part, divide the Clos de Vougeot vineyard from the Vosne-Romanée Premiers Crus vineyards.
Grands-Échezeaux and Échezeaux both date their AOC Grands Crus from July 31, 1937. Like the Clos de Vougeot (from which they are separated only by a wall), they were founded by the monks of the abbey of Cîteaux and date from the 12th and 13th centuries. Their name derives from chesaux, a word of Gallo-Roman origin meaning a group of dwellings, presumably referring to an ancient hamlet.
 

Terroirs

Belonging geologically to the Jurassic (175 million years BC), the GrandsÉchezeaux vineyards are fairly homogeneous and lie close to the upper part of the Clos de Vougeot. Gradient: 3-4%. Soil: clay-limestone overlying Bajocien limestone. Altitudes: 250 metres. The Échezeaux Climats have more diverse soils (largely bajocien marls with pebbly overlay). Altitudes vary from 230 to a little over 300 metres (13% gradient at mid-slope). Up-slope, the soil is deep (70-80 cm). Gravels, red alluvium, yellowish marl, etc., make up quite a complex mosaic.
