Domaine Dujac Echezeaux Grand Cru 2020
The 2020 Domaine Dujac Echezeaux Grand Cru is a powerful and expressive example of Burgundy's Echezeaux terroir. Boasting a deep garnet color, the wine opens with an enticing nose of ripe raspberries, blackberries, and floral notes, accompanied by hints of wet earth and truffle. The palate is rich and concentrated, showcasing layers of dark fruit, fine tannins, and vibrant acidity that come together in a harmonious balance. The finish is long and satisfying, with an undercurrent of minerality and spice that adds depth and intrigue. This wine is destined for a long life in the cellar and will continue to develop and evolve over the years.
Vineyard notes - The Grand Cru of Les Échezeaux lies to the west and southwest of the Clos de Vougeot, at the mouth of the Combe d'Orveau valley, where the slope is steep (6.5%). The plot ranges in altitude from 277 to 281 meters. The lieu-dit faces southeast. The reddish-brown soil is 40 to 50 cm thick, with light-colored limestone fragments and chert nodules (chailles). The substratum underlying Les Échezeaux is very probably composed of Premeaux limestone.
