2007-Domaine Jean Grivot Echezeaux Grand Cru
Echezeaux, Burgundy, France
"Jon Gree-voh Ay-shuh-zoh"
Perched above all the other vineyards of Vosne Romanee, the Echezeaux vineyard's exposure to cold breezes slows its ripening process compared to the warmer sites below. The result is a more delicately nuanced version of Burgundy's elusive, alluring and seductive aromas of dark cherries, dark chocolate, oriental spices and truffle mushrooms. Ideal companion to rich, mild recipes of beef, lamb, game birds, rabbit, veal, pork or red fish. Best 8 - 20+ years from vintage after 1hour+ of decanting.
