Echezeaux Grand cru 2014 Philippe Pacalet

Variety: Pinot Noir 100%

From non-certified organic cultivation

Composed only of the Echezeaux vineyard, classified as a Grand Cru, it is one of the most famous in the world, for the wines of the highest class it produces.

The soil is calcareous clay and in the sub-layer of iron and sand minerals.

A natural semicircle conformation of the valley, with the orientation of the vineyard towards the south-east, help to develop the heat necessary for a full maturation.

The vines have an average age of 45 years, a yield of 30 hectoliters per hectare, and a plant density of 10,000 plants per hectare.

Harvest takes place manually, as well as the fermentation is carried out without adding sulfur dioxide, and with the sole use of indigenous yeasts. The same extends for about four weeks, without temperature control.

Malolactic transformation takes place in wooden barrels.

It refines for a minimum of 17 months on fine lees and with continuous remuage in Burgundy barriques.

Echezeaux Grand cru 2014 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.
