Red - ÉCHEZEAUX, Vieilles Vignes, Les Treux, Jean Tardy. Burgundy

2009 ÉCHEZEAUX, Les Treux, Jean Tardy. Burgundy (Magnum)

Bin: 894
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 section called 'Les Treux' which is next to the neighbouring Grand Cru of Grands-Échezeaux.
(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).
Grape Variety: Matured in oak for 18 months; 70% of the barrels were new
Producer: Domaine Jean Tardy is now run by Jean's sone Guillaume, who tends to 5 hectares in total
Old Bridge Rating: Showed very well at a Vosne-Romanée / Echezeaux tasting in December 2015. Exciting opulence
