Burghound, January 2014,
This is also exuberantly fresh if quite restrained with a lovely spice character to the primarily red currant suffused nose. I very much like the complexity of the seductively textured medium weight flavors that brim with dry extract on the racy, intense and balanced finish. This refined effort will also need at least a decade before it will be able to realize its considerable potential. Drink 2023+

(from a warm southern exposure in the lieu-dit Combe d'Orveaux; aging in two-thirds new oak): Medium red. Aromas of red cherry, cinnamon and earth. Silky, suave and sweet, with a slightly candied quality to the cherry, spice and mint flavors. Savory, stylish Echezeaux with a long, saline, soil-driven finish. This very ripe wine will nonetheless require four or five years of cellaring to absorb some of its tannins.
Maison Joseph Faiveley
This Burgundian domaine of 120 hectares has been a family estate for more than 180 years. Erwan Faiveley, 7th generation, took the reins from his father 2 years ago when he was only 25. They have earned their reputation as one of Burgundy's finest and most trusted, with an unparalleledselection from the Côte de Nuits and Côte Chalonnaise. Domaine Faiveley owns some of the best slopes of the region with some located in Mercurey and Corton Grand Cru and Premier Cru. Following principles of strict quality control, the family produce great wines across thirty appellations in an elegant, graceful and well-structured style.
One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Relatively large and consequently diverse for a Grand Cru, the better Echézeaux wines undoubtedly deserve this status. As always in Burgundy vineyard location and grower is critical.
