Like the Ech this is aromatically quite restrained but aggressive swirling eventually coaxes an intensely floral and strikingly perfumed nose to reveal notes of elegant red berries, anise, exotic tea and soft wood hints. This is very Grands Ech in character with its sleekly muscular big-bodied flavors that display outstanding intensity on the moderately austere, backward and notably more structured finale. Interestingly this is only slightly more persistent than the Ech though this could very well change in time as there is clearly more underlying material.

The 2013 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru is probably more expressive than the Echézeaux on the nose with heightened delineation. Here there is wonderful precision and penetration. A second barrel showed a more floral character, the fruit slightly redder than the first. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins. This is just full of energy percolating through the dark berry, bergamot and bilberry fruit, yet there is a firm grip on the masculine finish, the second barrel a touch suppler and pastille-like. This is an aristocractic Grands Echézeaux in the making. Date: Dec 2014; Rating: 92-94 Points; Neal Martin; Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
