Description

They are fortunate to have more than a hectare in all, spread between Poulaillères, Treux and En Orveaux. Huge density of purple colour. Very smooth and silky on the nose. Sensual. There is a nice little bit of tension behind with a welcome touch of natural acidity.

Neal Martin, Vinous92-94/100
he 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a fragrant, perfumed bouquet with violet and iris petals infusing shimmering black cherry and wild strawberry fruit; touches of orange pith emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and very harmonious, showing a velvety texture that is very sleek and tempting. A lovely Echezeaux.

Drink 2022-2042

Juicy and vital on the nose – impressive energy! Very smooth and savoury. Crackling texture. With immediate fruit and lots of undertow.

About this WINE

Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot

Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot

Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot is a family-owned estate that has gained recognition for its exceptional wines, particularly from the Côte de Nuits subregion, where they focus on producing high-quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The Coquard and Loison families, with rich winemaking histories, came together to form the estate, and later, the Fleurot family joined the partnership. This consolidation allowed them to pool their expertise and resources, strengthening their position in the Burgundy wine scene.

The domaine benefits from prime vineyard holdings in various renowned appellations, including Vosne-Romanée, Gevrey Chambertin, and Chambolle Musigny, among others. The diverse terroir of these vineyards contributes to the complexity and character of their wines.

During the winemaking process, sustainable and traditional practices are emphasized, with great attention to detail at every stage. They focus on expressing the unique characteristics of each vineyard plot and strive to produce wines that reflect the true essence of Burgundy’s terroir. The Pinot Noir wines are often praised for their finesse, purity, balanced fruit, and earthy flavors. The Chardonnays are also well-regarded for their freshness and complexity.

Échezeaux

Échezeaux

Located in the commune of Flagey-Échezeaux, just south of the village of Vosne-Romanée in the Côte de Nuits, Échezeaux is a grand cru vineyard, producing some of the finest red wines in the world.

The terroir is varied, with different climats having diverse soil compositions and microclimates. The soils comprise limestone, clay, and gravel, contributing to the wines’ complexity and character. The variations in terroir result in wines with distinct nuances and expressions.

The wines are exclusively made from Pinot Noir grapes and are known for their depth, richness, and complexity, often exhibiting aromas of red and dark fruits, spices, earth, and floral notes. These can age gracefully for many years, developing more intricate flavors and textures with time.

Many esteemed and well-known wine producers have vineyard holdings in Échezeaux, contributing to the region’s reputation. Some of the most prestigious producers craft exceptional wines from this grand cru vineyard. Due to its Grand Cru status, however, the wines can be relatively rare with the combination of high demand and limited availability, making them highly sought-after amongst collectors.

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy's Côte d'Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climats of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
