Description

The 2018 Echezeaux Grand Cru is a promising cuvée in the making, mingling aromas of dark berry fruit, cassis and cherries with notions of burning embers, dried flowers and dark chocolate. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and ripely tannic, with a layered and nicely concentrated core, lively acids, and a well-defined finish. 92-94 points, William Kelley, Robert Parkers’ The Wine Advocate

The 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru had been racked the day prior to my visit. That said, the bouquet is very well defined, offering black cherries, raspberry, rosemary and pressed rose petal aromas that blossom with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannins, good depth and precision, revealing bitter cherry and a touch of balsamic toward the finish. Very good potential. 93-95 points, Neal Martin, Vinous

Deepish crimson colour, the nose is concentrated but sombre. The stems keep it lively. Extra intense as you move to the back of the palate, liquid raspberry with a spicy complexity. Very good length here and I can sense future rose petals. 94-97 points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
