Philippe Pacalet, Echezeaux 2012

The Echezeaux 2012 from Pacalet is another succes in this vintage. The bouquet offer lovely quite expressive organic red berry fruit – with lovely spicy notes of violets, white peppar and peony rose. On the palate layers of quite dense and focused red fruit – with a slightly darker expression than the two Gevrey grand crus. It’s balanced, focused and quite tightly knit – with a fine freshness and minerality. A fine Echezeaux in the making – is it matching the beautiful 2010?

  • Philippe Pacalet – ageing potential of low SO2 wines Natural wines are very popular in Denmark, and the use of SO2 in the vinification have become very controversial among certain groups of winos.
