Burgundy - ECHÉZEAUX, Grand Cru, Mongeard Mugneret

2005 ÉCHEZEAUX, Grand Cru, Mongeard Mugneret. Burgundy

Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Échezeaux is a large (38 hectare) Grand Cru. It can make exceptional wine but the soil obviously varies across such a sizeable vineyard and, more importantly, there are 80 different land-owners. This one is from the heart of the vineyard, in the middle of the slope.
(One curiosity is that you will sometimes see Échezeaux mentioned as part of Vosne-Romanée, but technical it is actually in the neighbouring commune of Flagey-Échezeaux). However as all the 'village' and Premier Cru wines in Flagey are allowed to be called Vosne, then many of us feel that really Échezeaux could and shoudl be considered part of that village too).

Producer: A domaine formed when a Mongeard and a Mugneret married in the 1920s. Vincent Mongeard now has 30 hectares, spread across many villages
Vintage: 2005 Great year - this is still relatively youthful and will peak around 2020
