Hoffmann-Jayer Echezeaux Du Dessus Grand Cru 2015

75cl

Located in the lower part of the Echézeaux, at the upper limit of Grand Echézeaux, Echezeaux Du Dessus Grand Cru is composed of Pinot Noir grapes with an average age 50 years, Guyot trained. Hand-picked at optimum ripeness, the grapes are then sorted, 100% destemmed and vatted. Fermentation lasts between 20 and 25 days. After racking, pressing and settling, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation before being aged for between 14 and 18 months in barrel. There is a single racking before the wine is bottled, unfiltered.

 

A fantastic expression with huge ageing potential.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Black fruit dominated by notes of violets and peonies. Initially closed, but a little oxygenation brings out notes of sweet spice and a complex, meaty aroma.
Palate Big, bold and muscular, the wine is very rich on the middle palate, with the aromatics continuing through to the finish. A good structure also through to the finish.
