Showing a little more concentration and depth than the Lamarche Echézeaux in 2018 (though that is an impressive wine in its own right), this comes from a single parcel of 0.3ha. With a hint of good reduction on the nose, it's a savoury, spicy number with some tannic grip to complement the scented berry fruit that's so typical of this domaine's wines. Drinking Window 2024 - 2032. (TA)
Gorgeously perfumed aromas waft from the glass to reveal slightly more elegant and layered aromas of red berry fruit liqueur that are trimmed in hints of sandalwood, violet, lilac and lavender. The mouthfeel of the larger-scaled flavors is at once muscular yet reasonably refined while delivering excellent length on the very firmly structured finale. At present this is somewhat linear and austere, yet my sense is that it will flesh out with extended time in bottle.
The 2018 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru comes from Lamarche’s 0.30 hectares of vine. It has a little more horsepower than the Echézeaux, scents of orange peel and a light ash-like aroma infusing the red fruit. Fine definition here, if not profound complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, lithe tannins. This is a sleek and silky smooth Grands Echézeaux with a lovely touch of spice that bursts through on the finish. Give this two to three years in bottle, as it is will be early-drinking for a Grand Cru, though I suspect it will drink well for many years. (NM)
