Domaine Christian Clerget Échézeaux Grand Cru 'En Orveaux' 2020
Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir. The plot for Échézeaux Grand Cru is near Orveaux, above Clos de Vougeot. The clay-limestone soil is stony and well drained. 18 months in new oak barrels for 50%, the rest in barrels having contained one or two wines. The wine is racked once using a hand bellows upon completion of secondary fermentation. When mature, barrels containing the same variety of wine are blended in a single vat using a racking process. We bottle the wine ourselves at the vineyard, without it being clarified or filtered in any way.
Taste: Ruby red color in the glass with a sunny scent of ripeness from red fruits such as strawberry, raspberry, and currant that are accompanied by notes of undergrowth. On the palate the wine is complex, structured, full-bodied. The finish is long, and remains supple. This wine blends strength and finesse... An haute couture wine with distinct yet mellow tannins.
