The 2011 Echezeaux Grand Gru from Domaine Jacques Prieur is 100% Pinot Noir from Champs Traversins in the historic heart of Echezeaux. This micro-climate is magnificent: airy, fresh and healthy. This vintage is defined by is precocity, with sun ripened berries harvested during the peak of their maturity. The 2011 Echezeaux Grand Gru from Domaine Jacques Prieur is aged in new oak for 19 months. The lovely ruby-red robe with violet highlights precedes a subtle nose with soft fruit, tobacco, leather and nutmeg. The aromatic bouquet is pure and complex with a lovely evolution. The palate is defined and juicy, rich with pure and fleshy fruit. The finish is lengthy and delicious with refined, smooth tannins.
