An exuberantly spicy and fresh nose displays a wonderful array of liqueur-like black cherry aromas that are liberally laced by notes of tea, lavender and hoisin. There is both fine richness and volume to the medium-bodied and caressing flavors that tighten up on the firm and beautifully well-balanced finish. This understated effort should be approachable after only 7 to 8 years of bottle age though reward 12 to 15, perhaps even longer.
The 2015 Echézeaux from Domaine Dujac is another outstanding wine in the making. The bouquet is deep, very elegant and again, sappy, as it delivers a fine constellation of red and black cherries, dark chocolate, gamebird, woodsmoke, dark soil tones, vanillin oak and an exotic topnote of lavender. On the palate the wine is pure, sappy and full-bodied, with a lovely core of fruit, refined, seamless tannins, good acids and excellent length and grip on the soil-driven and very promising finish. 2025-2075+.
The 2015 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a sense of brightness on the nose that actually reminded me of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti! There is a sense of effervescence and vibrancy in situ, conveying a wine with a sense of purpose. With time, there is a touch of wilted rose petal complementing the fruit aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe red berry fruit, orange pith and a touch of sea salt. It shows very good length with a very precise finish, a "complete" Echézeaux that does much to impress.(NM)
Bright, dark red. Perfumed aromas of maraschino cherry, dried flowers and red licorice. Silky, juicy and fine-grained, conveying terrific intensity and a light touch to its red fruit, milk chocolate and mint flavors. The tactile, palate-staining finish features noble tannins. I find this more typical and more aromatic than the 2016 version. The yield here was under 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Jeremy Seysses, but the wine showed a distinctly relaxed quality.
