(WS=94) Civilized for the appellation, with concentrated black cherry, plum and mineral aromas and flavors. It's vibrant, with thick, ripe tannins that lift the fruit. Terrific length and expression, with a lingering aftertaste of black olive and wild herbs. Best from 2015 through 2040. 50 cases made. (AM=92-94) This is perhaps the ripest nose to this point with subtle notes of mocha, spice and roasted coffee adding nuance to the black berry fruit nose that gives way to rich, full and slightly sauvage and mouth coating flavors that are exceptionally deep, concentrated and persistent. This is a big wine that is not quite as complex as the Clos de la Roche but just as big and well-muscled. (AG=91-94) Red-ruby. Full-blown, somewhat sauvage nose offers small wild red berries, leather, mocha and smoked meat. Round, broad and compellingly soft and sweet for young Echezeaux, with distinctly wild flavors of red cherry and leather. This has a viscosity of texture that should give it relatively early appeal in the context of these grand crus.
