This is a new format on the blog … articles where the location of the terroir of one wine is uncovered in depth and detail.
First out is the Jayer-Gilles Echezeaux du Dessus, one of the relatively few single climate and single plot Echezeaux’s on the market.
Climate and location
The plot – cadastre no 631 – is located in the northern end of Echezeaux du Dessus on the border to Les Poulailleres. The plot is 0.54 ha, and the neighbor to the south within Echezeaux du Dessus is Niquet-Jayer – cadastre no 632 – now produced by or sold to a negociant To the north we have one of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti’s plots in Les Poulailleres.
In the corner of the Jayer-Gilles holdings – on a separate plot – there is a small building, just next to the road between Echezeaux du Dessus and Grands Echezeaux – see photo below.
