This is an assemblage of two sectors of the Echézeaux vineyard – 25% from Les Quartiers de Nuits, which lies just over the wall from Clos-Vougeot, and the balance from Les Rouges du Bas, higher on the hillside. The first plot has vines whose average age is 50 years, the second, more than 60 years. About 15% whole clusters were included (unusually at this estate). Some whole clusters were first retained for Echézeaux in 2016, when there were so few grapes (after a frost) that it was evidently sensible to retain some whole bunches, to help half-fill the vat. The result was excellent, so they did it again in 2017, 2018 and now in 2019. Colour is purple-ruby of medium depth, aromas being fresh, open and lovely. Palate shows intense fruitiness, with elegant, supple texture and fine length, promising a great future (for drinking 2023-2032+).
