Flagey Echézeaux, Côte De Nuits

Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot

Echézeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2011


Very expressive and complex nose of dark fruits, black cherries, an earthy side, the nose shows some age as well as the delicious palate even it is feels still young, rich and full, without excess or being too extracted or too ripe, big caveat is the very ordinary and short finish not worthy of a real Grand Cru. 91-92

Un nez expressif et complexe avec des fruits noirs, cerises noires cuites, terreux, sous bois, montre unpeu d’âge, en bouche aussi, un style plein et riche mais sans exces, beau vin mais sans la longueur d’un vrai Grand Cru. Ne vaut pas le prix demandé aujourd’hui.

This is a 10.0. Let me get that out of the way. This nose is absurd. The palate is perfect. Soy, hoisin, black currents, black cherry, violets, just perfect. This is almost a 10.5 nose.

Notes are hard when a wine is this good, as I’m enjoying too much to get super analytical.

The nose is beyond. Forest floor. Caramel. Succulent pure fruit. Just beyond. This is elite. Beyond elite. This is an 11. Insane inner mouth aromas. So complete. So precise. So perfect. So delineated. So much energy, huge mineral wash on finish. Finish is endless. This is one of the greatest Burgundies I’ve ever had in my life.

Domaine Gros Frère et Sœur

Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1996

A youthful nose of violets, faint smoke and spice. In the mouth the vintages’s telltale acidity is front and center and encase the red and dark fruit along with subtle earth notes. Tannins are there but unobtrusive. Plenty of current pleasure but certainly can be held — 10 hours ago

Echézeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir

This wine is often described as meaty which could be a sign of Brett. None of this was evident, showing better than the grand echezeaux we sampled before. Earthy, bing cherries, salty, medium body. Quite a joy to drink now. Pure and refined. — 5 days ago

Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir

More substance than the echezeaux, dense core, musty cherries but elegant at the same time, first time ever experience of this cuvée. Needs patience will be wonderful in next 10 years. — 5 days ago

Reading someone like yourself write about “firsts” (especially in this region) confirms the endless learning curve of wine and lead me to some new discoveries. Thanks and enjoy!
