Autumn leaves, tobacco, menthol and black cherries are supported by firm, incisive tannins in the 2012 Echezeaux. This is a decidedly powerful, structured Echezeaux built on serious power. Readers will have to give the 2012 at least a few years to settle down and fully come together. (AG)
A very spicy nose of primarily dark berry fruit also evidences discreet notes of earth and sandalwood. There is excellent intensity to the cool and pure medium-bodied flavors that possess both good size and weight before culminating in a palate coating and moderately austere finish that delivers excellent length.
The 2012 Echezeaux Grand Cru comes from bought-in fruit whereby Jean-Marie conducts the harvest. It has a radiant bouquet with lively redcurrant, fresh strawberry and Morello aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a velvety smooth entry, good acidity and quite a weighty finish with fine matiere. This is very promising. (NM)
