"The 2016 Echézeaux Grand Cru comes from Les Rouges du Bas and contains a 100% whole bunch. It has a lucid ruby colour. A little muted at first, it opens with dark cherry, orange blossom and raspberry preserve scents, a hint of vanilla pod in the background. The palate is ripe and sappy on the entry with superb definition, a little spice towards the finish, an Echézeaux with what feels like natural flow. Superb."

"An elegant, ripe and relatively airy nose fuses notes of spice and dried flowers with those of essence of red currant and cherry. I very much like the mouthfeel of the strikingly complex middle weight plus flavors that flash evident minerality on the beautifully persistent and well-balanced finale. This Ech should be excellent in time."
