not-to-be-missed price
 
There are 14 owners of Grands Echezeaux and despite its 9.14 hectare size it is quite hard to find. The Domaine de la Romanee-Conti own the largest portion at 3.53 ha. Domaine Desaunay-Bissey comes in eighth with 0.34 hectares. 
The vineyard has long been admired with the monks of the Abbey of Citeaux tending vines there as far back as the 12th century. 

Burghound says "A great Grands Echezeaux is a thing of beauty, combining raw power with robust muscle that is sleek and never coarse....It is also important to note that a fine Grands Echezeaux can be remarkably long-lived and if there is an aspect where such a storied wines doesn't receive its due credit, it is longevity. Indeed, Aubert de Villaine has told me that the Domaine's version may very well be the longest-lived wines and this would include Romanee-Conti."

I find Grands Echezeaux combines elements of he great Grand Crus of Vosne-Romanee - structure, spice and intensity - but it also has its own nuances that are more interesting and layered than most Echezeaux.

I tasted at Domaine Desaunay-Bissey earlier this year and was delighted with what I was offered.

Today we present the Grands Echezeaux 2014. The wine is priced at around the same level as many domaine's Echezeaux. At that price you can't go wrong. Buy at our Pre Arrival Price and save 15%.

Landed Price $445.00
Pre Arrival Price $375.00
Desaunay-Bissey Grands Echezeaux label Desaunay-Bissey own 0.34 hectares of Grands Echezeaux. The domaine's Grands Echezeaux vines were planted in 1929 and the resulting wine is justifiably labeled Vieilles Vignes!

I did not taste this wine during my visit but based on the quality of the other wines I feel very confident about it. The 2014 vintage with its savoury, structured style should meld extremely well with Grands Echezeaux's ability to age.
