It's rare for a producer of Echézeaux to specify the name of the climat on the label, but En Orveaux, located at the foot of the Combe d'Orveaux, is a very particular site that comes into its own in hot vintages. Racy, lacy and perfumed, with lovely rose petal aromas, it has some added spice and freshness from 20% whole bunches and wonderful balance. (TA)
A discreet application of wood easily allows the markedly spice aromas of various ripe dark berries, poached plum and exotic tea to be appreciated. There is both good energy and richness to the bigger and slightly more powerful medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by notably firm but fine-grained tannins, all wrapped in a gorgeously complex and sneaky long finish. This is terrific and the natural coolness of En Orveaux is a big plus in 2018.
Vinified with some 20% whole cluster, Faiveley's 2018 Echézeaux En Ourveaux Grand Cru bursts with aromas of wild berries, smoked meats, violets, spices, earthy soil tones and a subtle hint of leather. On the palate, it's full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with attractive energy and structural polish, concluding with a perfumed and delicately sauvage finish. (WK)
