Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 
About This Wine:

Flagey-Echezeaux, located along the “Route des Grands Crus”, is an appellation that exclusively produces Grand Cru wines, including our "Champs traversins". The appellation’s name is derived from the term "Chezeaux", which refers to the grouping together of the surrounding hamlets. Our plot is located at an altitude of 300 metres, the vines faces east for optimal exposure to the sun and are planted in very light soil on a steep slope .

Tasting:
An elegant, racy nose with aromas of plum, peppery spices, tea and cocoa. The palate is fleshy and well balanced with pleasing tannins. Nice long finish.

Food/wine pairing:
This exquisite wine is an ideal match for finely prepared red meats, all types of game, stews, marinated red meats, as well as most cheeses.


Ratings & Reviews


95 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This massive wine is powered by dark, concentrated and smoky tannins that are masking the fruit. Dry and dense, it will take many years for the black fruits behind the facade to develop. Drink this intense wine from 2025. Roger Voss" - (8/1/2016)

91-94 Points - Vinous:
"(the yield here was 28 hectoliters per hectare; vinified with one-third whole clusters): Bright, healthy dark red. Perfumed scents of redcurrant, raspberry, dried flowers and rust, lifted by a minty nuance. Very rich and concentrated, with a saline element adding interest to the flavors of strawberry, raspberry and minerals. At once energetic and seriously stuffed: the roundness comes from clay but the rocks in the soil ensure structure and vivacity. Big tannins spread out to saturate the palate and the front teeth on the tactile, broad, very long finish. " Stephen Tanzer - (Jan 2016)
