Adjacent to Clos de Vougeot, Grand-Échézeaux borders the south-west side and is situated on the slopes over several hamlets. Grand-Échézeaux produces a bright, deeply-coloured wine. As a young wine it develops fine aromas that evoke cherry and cocoa beans, a rare and fine quality sought after in the "climat". As it ages, its fragrances mature into notes of undergrowth, truffle, fine leather and sometimes an almost imperceptible touch of cigar and cedar. Its noble, fine-grained tannins have just the right combination of silkiness and freshness. The finish is extremely long and echoes the same elegant sensations experienced on the nose. Drunk young, this wine is fairly vigorous, whereas after 12 to 15 years of cellaring it becomes subtle and racy.

Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru Gros Frère & Soeur serve at a temperature of 17°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Pièce de boeuf en croûte, Civet de lièvre, Fromages affinés mais pas trop puissants.
