Echezeaux Grand cru 2014 Magnum Philippe Pacalet

Red ruby ​​red.

On the nose it has simply exceptional. Almost not to serve to define the details. It is the whole that expresses its absolute value. Of course there are the typical and classic red fruits with currants and cramberry, then the flowers with the rose, but also traits of sandalwood and fine pipe tobacco. The classic scent of the hen house further enhances it.

On the palate it is immense, as any Grand Cru of Burgundy knows how to be, and as in particular this is certain to be. The terroir gives it a very particular minerality, so as to trace its memory forever. The aromas that reach the nose from the palate are of flowers, fruit and spices.

Overall it is an excellent and exciting wine, which will improve for many years in the future.

Philippe Pacalet did a completely different job until 1999 when he decided to rent small vineyard plots and start producing wines under his own name.

Within a very few years they jumped to the headlines, for the excellent quality, distinguished by a supreme elegance.
