Description

The 2018 Echezeaux Grand Cru wafts from the glass with an exotic bouquet of cassis and cherries complemented by nuances of incense, burning embers, dark chocolate and rich loamy soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and enveloping, with fine concentration, ripe acids and a long, elegantly vanillin-inflected finish. This is a relatively new bottling for Boillot that debuted in the 2017 vintage. 93 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A softly spicy nose speaks of purple fruit, floral and an appealing whiff of Asian style tea. There is a bit more mid-palate density to the medium-bodied flavors that combine good power with evident muscle on the firm, dusty, serious and youthfully austere finish. This will require at least some forbearance as it’s clearly constructed for the longer-term. 93 points - Allen Meadows, Burghound
