The 2020 Échézeaux Grand Cru has turned out just as well in bottle as I hoped it might. Unusually muscular and concentrated for this bottling, it unwinds in the glass with aromas of mulberries and blackberries mingled with orange zest and exotic spices, framed by a deft touch of new oak. Full-bodied, broad and velvety, with a deep core of fruit framed by rich, powdery tannins, it concludes with a long, expansive finish.

An exuberantly spicy and wonderfully floral nose exhibits additional aromas of poached plum, mocha, jasmine tea and an interesting hint of tangerine peel. The rich, concentrated and powerful bigger-bodied flavors possess an absolutely gorgeous mouthfeel thanks to the abundance of sappy dry extract that also buffers the firm core of ripe tannins shaping the stunningly long finish. This actually isn't quite as refined as the Petits Monts, but it is definitely more powerful and imposing, as well as slightly more structured.
