FAIVELEY FAIVELEY - Echezeaux Grand cru  - 2016

FAIVELEY Echezeaux Grand cru 2016

See the wine detail page

96 Points

One of the few Grand Cru bottlings that carries the name of its climat on the label, this was hit by frost but has emerged unscathed in terms of quality. This is a wonderfully elegant Echézeaux that has Chambolle-like aromas and texture. Graceful and well balanced with black cherry and raspberry fruit and crunchy acidity.
