Philippe Jouan Gevrey Chambertin Aux Echezeaux 2016
Red wine. Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. The Aux Echezeaux vineyard is located at the southern edge of Gevrey-Chambertin with Mazoyeres Chambertin on the north and west. Philippe Jouan is a highly talented wine maker and this wine shows why. Elegant and balanced the wine shows cherry, raspberry, and strawberry flavors and aromas, spices like Szechuan pepper, black pepper, and nutmeg. There are subtle floral aromas as well. An earthy backbone holds the wine together. A versatile wine for food, a good match would be a filet mignon with a red wine reduction and mushrooms.
