Domaine des Perdrix Echezeaux Grand Cru 2015 Côte de Nuits
TERROIR - Our vineyard of Echezeaux Grand Cru is divided into 2 plots located for 80% in the climat ‘Echezeaux Du-Dessus’ planted in 1922 and 20% in the climat ‘Quartiers de Nuits’ planted in 1945 Total area: 2.83 acres.
WINEMAKING - To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand. Grapes are partially destemmed (70%). Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold prefermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component’s exctraction. Then full maceration lasts for 15 days during which we’ll use only pigeages (punching the cap). Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour. Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts.
TASTING NOTES - Pretty red-velvet colour. Nice freshness with cherry and black pepper aromas. On the palate, the wine is ample and velvety.
Wine Enthusiast - "This is a great wine from a great vintage. Its openness is deceptive because behind those welcoming rich cherry and red-berry fruits is great structure, reflecting the magnificent terroir. The wine is firm and rich, fruity and with acidity." - Editor Choice
