"Supremely graceful"
- 2016 Jouan Gevrey-Chambertin "Aux Echézeaux"

Posted by Ian McFadden

Simply put, Jouan's wines are special.

They are supremely graceful and subtle Burgundies. They have a whispering complexity. Once you adjust to their un-showy wavelength, it's really easy to become obsessed.

The that fact our Jouan offers sell out so quickly testifies to how compelling the wines are.

Gevrey is known for its muscle and meatiness. The lieu-dit "Aux Echezeaux" complicates this image of Gevrey somewhat. It's located in the southern part of the appellation on the border of Morey-St.-Denis. It's more delicate and silky. Obviously, these qualities play right into Jouan's hands.

Jouan's Aux Echezeaux takes Gevrey's textbook soil-inflected minerality and adds a beguiling cast of aromatics, an enchanting textural allure and lift..

The 2016 Aux Echezeaux has really impressive detail, elegance and seductive texture. In this way, it's a classic example of the wine. However, the vintage endows the wine with an unusaul amount of concentration, blatant minerality and serious depth.

Jouan’s wines have become some our favorite red Burgundies. These are wines that we reach for again and again. What Jouan achieves is unique and really impressive. Don't miss.
