Domaine Jacques Cacheux Echezeaux and Vosne-Romanee Les Ormes 2015

 

Cacheux Echezeaux Ormes Header
Small quantities, high quality
 
Domaine Jacques Cacheux is located in Vosne-Romanée. They own 7 hectares of vines spread over 11 appellations in Vosne-Romanee, Flagey-Echezeaux, Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits-St-Georges. The jewels in the crown are a lovely selection of Vosne Villages and Premier Crus, and at the pinnacle, the Grand Cru Echezeaux.
 
Patrice Cacheux took over from his father in 1994 and immediately set about revitalising the vineyards with sustainable viticulture, to which they now practice biodynamic agriculture. The grapes are 100% de-stemmed, have a week of cold maceration, and left alone to start fermentation (no inoculation) then settled for 10 days after fermentation: Premier and Grand Cru fruit sees 100% new oak and bottled without fining or filtration.
 
Stylistically these wines are meant for ageing: their balance and oak management superb. The wines are airy with fresh tones, are neither dark fruited nor pale; they sit comfortably in their own skin and have no need to shout. 
Today we present two 2015's - Echezeaux - the domaine's top cuvee - and Vosne-Romanee Les Ormes. Both are available at a 25% Pre Arrival Discount.

Jancis Robinson: 
Cask sample. Wonderful spicy aromas, plus smoked almond, dark chocolate and rich, sumptuous cherry fruit. Immense fragrance on the finish. The oak is in the ascendancy right now, but it definitely has the fruit power to last. 17.5/20

Landed Price $153.95
Pre Arrival Price $115.50
17 bottles available

Cacheux Ormes label Vosne-Romanee Les Ormes is one of the domaine's lieut-dits. It is a fine wine which speaks of its noble commune.

Expect to see violets, plums and spice with a mineral finish.

More Grand Crus from Flagey-Echezeaux 

There are only two wines that state on their label that they are from Flagey-Echezeaux. They are the Grand Crus Echezeaux and Grands-Echezeaux.

Technically there are Villages and Premier Cru vineyards within the commune's border but these are labeled Vosne-Romanee. Ah, the joys of Burgundy!

We have a nice selection of Grand Crus available.
