Here the nose is similar to that of the Malconsorts though in this case the floral component is more pronounced. There is good verve, power and concentration to the big-bodied and imposingly scaled flavors that really coat the mouth on the focused and linear finish. This is more obviously structured and while not hard or aggressive, in contrast to the Malconsorts this is going to need at least a decade in the cellar before it will be approachable with pleasure.

One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Much more compact and homogenous than the neighbouring Echezeaux, the Grands Echézeaux vineyards are owned by around twenty producers - very modest in Burgundian terms. The most celebrated producers include Domaines de la Romanee Conti, d'Eugenie and Mongeard-Mugneret. These fine wines are richly complex yet balanced and have enormous ageing potential.
