The domaine was founded in 1991 by the businessman François Feuillet, the owner of the Trigano brand which is known for its caravans and trailers. He fell in love with the region and entrusted the development of the wines to David Duband, who had already harvested grapes for the cooperative of Beaune. The domaine is spread over 17 hectares, including Nuits-Saint-Georges, Vosne-Romanée, Clos-de-la-Roche and Charmes-Chambertin. All the ingredients are combined to perfect the classicism of Burgundy: the domaine is certified as organic and, in 2008, the choice was made to vinify non-destemmed grapes. Since 1991, the winemaker has evolved much in the style of his wines which have gained in precision and elegance. They are now one of the greatest wines of Côte d'Or and are on the menus of most French three star Michelin Guide restaurants.
About the cuvée
Échézeaux has an open bouquet with intense aromas of red and dark fruit and a hint of iris. The palate unveils rich tannins, power and a complex array of flavours that linger in the mouth. This wine has very good ageing potential and ideally should be paired with delicate meats (such as poultry and veal).

General : The «bio» designation covers certified wines produced by biodynamic or organic methods, sustainably produced wines, and «environmentally friendly» wines that are not officially certified. These designations apply to recent vintages (the date of certification, if known, is specified in the estate description). See the blog article for more information on this designation.
Biodynamic : The «biodynamic» designation is used for all estates certified as using biodynamic methods, as verified by one of the two official bodies, Demeter or Biodyvin. All wines produced by biodynamic methods are also certified as organic. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Organic : The «organic» designation covers all estates certified as using organic methods, as verified by one of the bodies approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, such as Ecocert. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Sustainable : The «sustainable» designation covers all estates certified as using integrated or High Environmental Value (level 3 Environmental Certification) techniques. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Evironmentally friendly : The «environmentally friendly» designation refers to estates practising environmentally friendly wine-growing techniques, but that have not opted for certification or who are still in the process of converting to organic agriculture or biodynamics. These estates may have adopted biodynamic principles (non-certified) or simply no longer use chemical products. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Natural : Wines which are produced without any added sulfur (or almost any) and with no other inputs. However, given that there is no official body to issue the natural wine label, it is based on winemakers’ statements. This designation applies to recent vintages.
