Flagey-Échezeaux


Wine By Region Right Europe Right France Right Burgundy Right Côte de Nuits Right Flagey-Échezeaux Right Échezeaux  Grands Échezeaux


This scenic village, located to the far east of the Côte de Nuits, has two Grands Crus but has no village appellation of its own! This strange situation, apparently unique to Burgundy, arises from the classification of Échezeaux and Grands Échezeaux as Grands Crus. The three Premiers Crus of Flagey-Échezeaux, Les Beaux Monts, Les Rouges, and En Orveaux, are instead classified under Vosne-Romanée wine.

As a result, this page is sheerly a container page for the two Flagey-Échezeaux Grands Crus, which entirely make up the village's international wine reputation. For information about Flagey-Échezeaux's three important Premiers Crus, see the Vosne-Romanée page. Listed below are the two Grands Crus.
