Burghound, January 2015,
(from En Orveaux). A notably spicy and attractively floral-suffused nose features notes of plum, rose petal, violets and ripe red currants. There is a seductive texture to the openly rich and generously proportioned flavors that retain a lovely sense of vibrancy on the lightly mineral-inflected finish that delivers both fine depth and length. This is a relatively refined Ech thanks to the fine grain of the supporting tannins. Drink 2025+
Sarah Marsh, November 2014,
This is silky and urbane, but a little herbal maybe. Just on the limit. It is a cooler vintage expression and a cooler area from En Orveaux. It focuses to tight finish. Lighter and more mineral and a little edgier.. A tad marginal. Score 18.5
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.
