The 2015 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru is matured entirely in new oak and unlike the Echézeaux, it was completely de-stemmed. It has a precise bouquet with expressive red berry fruit, cranberry, wild strawberry and pomegranate, though these are complemented by dark, blacker fruit with time in the glass. There is very good terroir expression here with undergrowth and damp moss-like aromas developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit and a pinch of sea salt that gets the saliva flowing. There is exquisite balance here, very fine tannins and much more sophistication towards the finish compared to the Echézeaux. It is a brilliant, intellectual wine from Maxime Chuerling, but it will require 5-7 years in the cellar before it reaches full flight.(NM)
The 2015 Grands Echézeaux from Monsieur Cheurlin is also a beautiful bottle in the making. The bouquet is pure and impressively complex, jumping from the glass in a blaze of black plums, red and black raspberries, bitter chocolate, gamebird, a very complex base of dark soil tones, woodsmoke and nutty new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very suave on the attack, with a superb core of fruit, ripe, seamless tannins and a very long, vibrant and utterly classic finish. Great juice. 2025-2075.
(from a .40 ha parcel). A restrained nose requires plenty of agitation to reveal the aromas of spiced plum, red and dark currant and soft whiffs of various floral elements. There is a caressing yet muscular palate feel to the succulent medium weight plus flavors that display a lovely inner mouth perfume on the complex, firm and strikingly persistent finish. This is classy juice that, like the Ech, should be approachable young yet reward extended cellaring. 2027+
Full deep red. Musky dark raspberry, espresso and dark chocolate on the nose, complemented by an element of graphite minerality. Tighter by far than the Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Boudots but with no hardness to its berry and mineral flavors; in fact, this classy wine is downright velvety with some aeration. Finishes firm, penetrating and very long, with excellent precision and lift. This should evolve slowly and gracefully. (ST)
