Échezeaux

2017

Amélie works in a .06 hectare parcel of this Grand Cru.  This is the domaine's third vintage of this bottling.

Very limited.

(91-93) points
"...matured with 70% whole bunches, not that you can tell, in just 11.11 percent new oak (one quarter-size barrel new plus two used pièces, if you’re doing the math!) It has quite an intense bouquet, a combination of red and black fruit mixed with oyster shell and hints of dark chocolate. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, smooth texture and good balance, displaying an almost pastille-like purity and a sweet, maraschino-tinged finish. Excellent and maybe earlier-drinking than the Clos de Vougeot."
