Deep ruby color. An ultra-spicy and attractively fresh nose is composed by openly floral, Asian tea, plum and black currant scents. There is a lovely sense of energy to the fleshy and concentrated medium weight flavors that coat the palate with dry extract while delivering lovely depth and length. The Brûlées is excellent but this very firm and serious effort possesses better overall complexity and the mouth feel is sensational.
The 2014 Echézeaux Grand Cru, like the Brûlée, was quite closed on the nose when I tasted it. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly chewy tannin at the moment. This feels quite masculine, with a strong tannic backbone, nicely focused but in need of some serious bottle age. It needs to lighten up a little, stretch its wings and breathe. (NM)
Dark, bright red. Captivating aromas of cherry, red berries and dried flowers are accented by topnotes of white pepper and high-pitched spices Juicy, spicy, penetrating and dry, with a floral light touch and terrific energy giving its tactile fruit a distinctly sappy character Finishes with suave, fine-grained tannins and excellent glistening, rising length Incidentally, these vines were 80% frosted in 2016, according to Mallard. 92+ (ST)
