The 2010 Grands Echezeaux shows significantly more energy and floral lift than the Echezeaux. Spices, mint, flowers and graphite are some of the notes that develop in the glass, adding considerable depth and richness to the fruit. Layers of fruit build to the explosive, dazzling finish. This is breathtaking juice. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035. (AG)
A stunningly complex nose of black fruit, warm earth, game and a plethora of spice notes gives way to broad-shouldered, powerful and overtly muscular flavors that are firm and intense but not rustic as the compact tannins are more than well-buffered by the plenitude of dry extract on the mouth coating, explosive and hugely persistent finish. This isrobust but in a sleek and athletic fashion rather than that of a sumo wrestler. *Don't Miss!*
The 2010 Grands Echézeaux is a notable step up from the very good Echézeaux in the cellars this year, with added depth and aromatic complexity to go along with absolutely flawless balance. The exceptional nose jumps from the glass in a fine mélange of plums, dark berries, coffee bean, woodsmoke, lovely soil tones and new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very precise on the attack, with a sappy core of fruit, excellent transparency down to the soil, ripe tannins and outstanding length and grip on the very pure and dancing finish. Maison Jadot is not well-known for its Grands Echézeaux, but this may change once folks have a chance to taste this stellar 2010 version. (Drink between 2020-2070)
