2017 'en Orveaux' Grand Cru Domaine Faiveley


After the Clos Vougeot this is another notch up on the mineral scale. Almost pulsing with crisp drive. Great bright lines charge through this and the flow is superb. Real intensity to the firmish fruit. Notes of an apple and blackberry crumble - but without any sweetness or richness. The central core of fruit is really attractive, but measured and compacted for now. This is really attractive Echezeaux. Drinking range: 2020 - 2029L&S(Nov 2018)

A more floral-inflected nose reflects plenty of spice, herbal tea and sandalwood influences on the ripe aromas of plum and black cherry liqueur. The rich, intense and delineated medium-bodied flavors also display a taut muscularity as well as good power while delivering fine persistence on the youthfully austere, chiseled and linear finish. This is an Echézeaux of finesse and minerality. Drinking range: 2029 - Rating: 90-93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2019)

The 2017 Echézeaux En Orveau comes from a cool microclimate, the last before you reach Musigny, though here the vines face south rather than east on shallow soils. This has a pleasant bouquet, initially quite bashful but gaining intensity in the glass, with crushed stone infusing the dark berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, offering sappy red berry fruit, orange peel and a touch of marmalade, and quite grippy toward the back palate. A touch of allspice features on the aftertaste. This should drink nicely over the next two decades. A well-crafted, burly Echézeaux. Drinking range: 2022 - 2042 Rating: 92-94 Neal Martin, vinous.com(Jan 2019)

Red berry fruits on the nose. This is elegant and stream across the palate. I like the freshness and brightness and fine line. Pure onto the finish. Peppercorn. It has a lively long bite.. It is a fine and bright terroir. It’s a good idea to put the lieut dit on the label, as you expect it to be a high toned and lighter expression of Echezeaux.

Planted in 1970, this parcel is located on white limestone-dominated soils and always produces a very mineral style of Échézeaux: light, aromatic and charming with fine-boned tannins and well-handled oak, 40% new. A green harvest was done here in 2017 to restrict yields after the 2016 frost. Drinking range: 2023 - 2030 Rating: 94-94 Tim Atkin MW - Decanter(Nov 2018)

Wines bought en primeur are scheduled to arrive in the UK over the course of the next eighteen months. If you do not wish to take home delivery, you may wish to consider where you would like the wines shipped on arrival in the UK. Lea & Sandeman offers duty paid and in bond storage through a dedicated storage company called Elephant Storage. For more details on the terms and fees associated with storage please go to our Storage Homepage or contact our primeurs team for more information.

While helpful, we do not require a firm commitment on delivery destination to process your primeur order at this stage. Our team will be in contact with you when your wines arrive in the UK to confirm the necessary delivery details.


OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.

PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.

DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering. We do not anticipate any problems but please be aware that delays to delivery may occur should Britain's possible departure from the European Union result in additional border customs checks or other regulatory requirements. Any additional or unforeseen duties, tariffs, charges or other financial liabilities relating to 'Brexit' must be due to the customer and will be added to orders as required.

DELIVERY - FEES: In bond delivery to an Elephant Storage account (for more information see 'Storage Options' opposite) is free of charge. Transfer of wines to any third party bond (i.e. not Elephant Storage) will incur an administration charge of £16.50 + VAT for all orders under £1,000. If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment. Once the relevant duty & VAT has been settled, we will ship the wines to your nominated address as per our normal duty paid Delivery Terms.

PAYMENT: All orders will be invoiced for immediate payment by cheque, cash, debit card or cleared funds to our account. We regret that we cannot accept credit cards for primeur orders. We reserve the right to apply a dunning charge of 2% per month on invoices unpaid after 30 days.
