The first records of Echezeaux date back to the end of the 13th century. The monks from the abbey of Citeaux were aware of the outstanding quality of this terroir and its wines and had traded certain parcels in order to acquire land in Echezeaux. Domaine Faiveley's parcel lies in one of the appellation's sub-climats: "En Orveaux" lies on a slope close to the Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "La Combe d'Orveau".

Winemaker notes

Clear ruby hue and an enticing nose offering fruity and toasty notes. The palate is smooth and fruity with silky tannins and a long, lingering finish. This grand cru offer a firm, well balanced structure and excellent ageing potential.


BH 91-94: Moderate wood influence frames the perfumed and elegant aromas of black cherry, hoisin, violet, lavender and exotic tea. Here too there is excellent mid-palate density and volume to the rich and opulent medium weight plus flavors that retain reasonably good detail on the austere bitter cherry-inflected and slightly warm finale that goes on and on. This isn't quite as complex as the Clos de Vougeot but that may well change if given adequate time.

WA 92-94: The 2020 Echézeaux En Orveaux Grand Cru bursts with aromas of sweet red berries, rose petals, peonies, orange rind, plums and cinnamon. Medium to full-bodied, broad and enveloping, with powdery tannins, lively acids and a long, precise finish, this, too, is very promising.
