A beautifully spicy if distinctly reticent nose features notes of cassis, plum, violets, lilac, herbal tea and sandalwood. There is excellent richness to the generously proportioned and very suave medium-bodied flavors that deliver fine depth and length on the balanced, focused and attractively vibrant finale that displays just a hint of youthful edginess. While this should age effortlessly it should also be more approachable sooner than the Corton. Rating: 92 Points; Tasted: Jan 2016; Drink: 2025+; Issue: 61; Allen Meadows; Burghound

The 2013 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a pure bouquet with minerally blackberry and raspberry scents, plus a light marine influence. The palate is surprisingly concentrated considering the growing season, thanks to it being the last vineyard picked on October 12 and the super-low yields of 16 hectoliters per hectare. It is endowed with impressive weight matched with a fine thread of acidity. There is a gentle grip in the mouth, but with the volume you might expect in a Richebourg on the finish. This is very promising - a quite ambitious Echézeaux in the making. Rating: 91-93 Points; Date: Dec 2014; Neal Martin; #216
