Pretty ruby colour with purple reflects. Intense and fruity with black fruits scents. Some spicy notes as well: cinnamon, pepper. On the palate, the wine is ample, very persistent. Tart finish with black fruits, chocolate and pepper notes. Beautiful tannins. Great cellaring potential. Our vineyard of Echezeaux Grand Cru is divided into 2 plots located for 80% in the climat ‘Echezeaux du Dessus’ planted in 1922 and 20% in the climat ‘Quartiers de Nuits’ planted in 1945. Total area : 1,14 hectares (2,83 acres). Climat & Soil : South/South-East facing smooth slope. Clayey limestony soil - brown clay predominance with many little rocks. To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand. Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold prefermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component’s exctraction. Grapes are previously partially destemmed. Then full maceration lasts for 15 days during which we’ll use only pigeages (punching the cap). Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour. Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts. After maceration, free and press wines are separated for aging. Aging process is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barrels during 15 months with 80% of new barrels. ABV 13.5%
