2014 Domaine d'Eugénie Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1247258 95 points Vinous

 Bright medium red Lovely violet lift to the subdued aromas of black cherry and minerals Sweeter and richer than the Echézeaux, but still restrained in the middle palate, offering notes of spicy red berries, flowers and minerals The above wine is more accessible today, but this wine impresses with its explosive, mounting peacock's tail of a finish, which stains the finish and lingers without any loss of energy This wine is built for a graceful evolution in the bottle but it's also amazingly showy today.

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A discreet but not invisible touch of wood frames exuberantly spicy and again markedly floral aromas of black cherry, violet, plum and anise. As is typically the case there is more size, weight and power to the medium weight plus flavors that also brim with dry extract that both coats the palate and largely buffers the firm tannic spine on the sleek and focused finale where a hint of bitter cherry appears. Patience will be required.  (1/2016)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru is matured in four new barrels out of five. The nose is a little more open than the Echézeaux, fine delineation here, black cherries and raspberry, a touch of the sea. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a keen line of acidity, gently gripping the mouth with a persistent, refined finish. I might have preferred a little less new oak in the final blend but the quality is here, if not that ineffable sophistication and grandeur. (NM)  (12/2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Just five barrels of which four are new. 33% whole bunch. Very deep blackish crimson. Rich brambly fruit with a nervy overlay. More race and integration than the Échezeaux. Really very fine. Complete. Finesse. Just falls away very, very slightly on the end but it’s pretty impressive! (17.5/20 points)  (11/2015)

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
