Echezeaux Grand Cru
"La Grande Complication"
Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée
Character of the wine
Just like the precision and know-how of the best watchmakers, each bouquet from our Grande Complication is expressed with purity and authenticity.
First, the wild berries - intense blackcurrant and lively raspberry- reveal all of the splendour of this selection of grains. Then, the subtleness of the aromas comes out as sweet spicy notes.
Then there’s silence.
Harmony, power, finesse and purity blend in a precious and complex movement. The scale of the site is perfectly calibrated and the grandeur of the Pinot Noir is sublimating. Our Grande Complication requires time to express itself with the emotions more intense as this exceptional quest goes on.
