Copious amounts of wood and menthol push the otherwise spicy and fresh aromas of dark currant, plum and floral scents to the background. There is outstanding volume to the delicious and mouth coating broad-shouldered flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract, all wrapped in an overtly structured and austere finale. Like a number of wines in the range, this too is absolutely going to require at least a decade's worth of patience.
The 2014 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru has a much more complex and nuanced bouquet compared to the 2014 Echézeaux, with lively red berry fruit intermingling with minerals. It gains intensity in the glass while retaining its composure. The palate is grippy on the entry with good density -- a compact but delineated Grands Echézeaux that will require bottle age. It is more masculine than others I have tasted, but it has the body and breeding you look for. (NM)
(one of three barrels were new):Bright, dark red. Slightly reduced aromas of blackberry and licorice come across as more oaky than the Echézeaux. Very concentrated but tightly wound, with black cherry and dark berry flavors showing medicinal and saline qualities. Powerful but still a bit brutal on the finish; these tannins will need long cellaring to soften. Very strong wine even if it can't match Jadot's Echézeaux for class or perfume. (ST)
