(from Les Rouges du Bas that is worked by horse because it is so steep). This is very ripe though the black berry liqueur and spice aromas stop just short of surmaturité. The equally ripe, suave and caressing velvet-textured flavors display a mocha component on the slightly sweet and warm finish. As the description suggests, this was somewhat awkward though because of the excellent underlying material my range assumes that this manages to recover with time in bottle. I underscore though that is a prediction, not a guarantee. (91-94)/2030+
(from Les Rouges du Bas; harvested on September 11 with potential alcohol near 13.5%): Bright medium red. Pungent mineral lift to the black cherry and cassis aromas. At once sweet and penetrating, with brooding black cherry and blackcurrant flavors somewhat leavened by juicy saline minerality; in a distinctly dark-fruit style for Jadot's Echézeaux. Very firmly built but not hard. This very concentrated wine finishes with substantial ripe, building tannins and is likely to need more cellaring than the Clos Vougeot, which is not typical.
The 2015 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a perfumed bouquet, a mixture of black and blue fruit, perhaps just a little smudged compared to others I have tasted, but with very impressive vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red berry fruit, rounded and velvety in texture, gently building to an assured finish. If it can muster a notch more precision on the nose, then it may well deserve a higher evaluation, but it remains a very delicious and enticing prospect. These tasting notes belong under the umbrella of "Louis Jadot", though it should be pointed out that these bottlings are under "Domaine Louis Jadot", that is to say that the company owns the vines rather than through contracts with growers.
