TASTING NOTES

"The 2018 Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru, which comes from the namesake lieu-dit, is one of Véronique Drouhin’s favorite crus and, in her opinion, one of their most consistent. It has a very well-defined bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, pressed iris flowers and incense that immediately seduces the senses. The palate is medium-bodied with fine supple tannins and a perfect line of acidity, the 40% whole cluster lending a little pepperiness toward the pixelated finish. This is unequivocally a Grand Vin."

"An exuberantly spicy and ultra-floral-inflected nose conveys notably ripe yet fresh aromas of plum, black raspberry and more subtle touch of wood. There is excellent mid-palate concentration to the delicious and mouth coating larger-scaled flavors that are finer while still displaying terrific power on the youthfully austere and equally serious finale. This is a big Grands Ech with a tannic spine to match to this is a ‘buy and forget you own it’ wine." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 78

"Deep cherry red. Ripe and dark on the nose. Savoury and rocky too. The fruit profile is ripe but the tannins add great freshness. This is dry and dark but suggesting a lovely fragrance as it opens. Long, dry and fresh with a savoury aftertaste." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
