(approximately 45 year old vines from 2 different climats, 90% of which is in Les Poulaillères and the other 10% is in Clos St. Denis; there was a lot of replanting done here in the decades of the sixties and seventies) No review available

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Plumper than the Vosne 1er Cru, displaying cherry and a hint of herbaceous vegetal notes. Has yet to absorb the wood, making this a little chunky for now. Fine length.'Non-blind 2002 DRC tasting (February 2005).

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($233) Medium red. Aromas of raspberry, red cherry, orange peel, minerals and tobacco, with a bit of exotic, high-toned oak. Juicy, fine-grained and suave, with a restrained sweetness. Lively, lingering flavors of redcurrant, iron and tobacco. Seems better than the 2003.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

The 2002 Echezeaux displays a demure nose of herbal, pepper-laced blackberries. Less generous at this stage than the Vosne, it has a light to medium-bodied character with white pepper, black fruit, and stone flavors. Its long finish reveals highly present, structure-giving tannin.

Bright ruby. Tight, sweet nose with a hint of violets. Attractive savoury note under lively, quite delicate fruit. There is real lift here. Perhaps not for the very long term but already a very attractive nose. Not mammoth concentration but impressive balance. Still quite noticeable tannins and great persistence – very much house style. Long.

DRC produces the grand crus Romanee Conti, La Tache, Richebourg, Romanee Saint Vivant, Grands Echezeaux, Echezeaux and Montrachet, of which both Romanee Conti and La Tache are monopoles.

Aubert de Villiane has farmed the vineyards organically since 1986 and adhered to traditional, natural winemaking practices. Only natural yeasts are used and aging is done in 100% new oak. The wines are characterized by finesse, balance and refinement. They directly reflect their sense of place and have the ability to age while increasing in both character and value.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
