Echezeaux du Dessus vineyard is known for years as superior to all other plots being part of the Echezeaux appellation. Both its location and the characteristics of this terroir are identical to the vineyard of Grands-Echezeaux. In 1990, owners of this unique 3.5 ha vineyard applied to the INAO, requesting to change its appellation from Echezeaux to Grands-Echezeaux. The application was finally declined due to objections mainly from land owners in Grands-Echezeaux, coming from greed and jealousy as the facts were clearly supporting the change.

Starting in the 2017 vintage, Jean-Marc and Alix Millot decided to make an experiment and they harvested, vinified and aged the wine coming from their Echezeaux du Desuss parcel separately from the other parcels of their own Echezeaux vineyards. The resulting wine proved to be unique, showing incredible depth and flavors, clearly different from both their Echezeaux and Grands-Echezeaux, and they decided to bottle the wine under its own label.
