This is a judicious assemblage of two sectors of the Echézeaux vineyard: Les Quartiers de Nuits, which lies just over the wall from Clos-Vougeot, and 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. Sadly, 60% of a normal production was lost to frost damage. Very deeply coloured, this has classic aromas of great complexity and beauty. The wine is gorgeous, showing creamy texture, ripe red and black fruit character, with an admirable, fresh lift to finish (for drinking 2021-2035+).
Prices for these wines will be available in mid/late January 2018 – with volumes down across this Domaine, please let us know where your interests lie as soon as you can, so we may let you know availabilities and details, as soon as we have them.
