Tasting Notes

Bright medium ruby. Aromas of plum and coffee show a faintly roasted aspect but lovely complexity. Silky and creamy but with captivating inner-mouth savory lift giving shape and an element of delicacy and restraint to the middle palate. Superconcentrated flavors of red berries and dried flowers display subtle sweetness and sexy saline tension. Finishes with refined tannins and outstanding perfumed persistence. It would be a shame to open this beauty too soon. (94+)

Score: 94

A pungent nose presently consists of strong wood and reduction. Otherwise there is a lovely sense of energy to the suave and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that coat the mouth with dry extract that also pushes the moderately firm tannins to the background on the impressively lasting finale. This is both focused and powerful and should reward up to 15 years of cellar time.

Score: 92 - 94

The 2015 Echézeaux Grand Cru, which comes from the "Combe d'Orveau" lieu-dit, is usually one of the first to be picked, as the soils can suffer drought. It has a crisp, dark cherry and crushed strawberry bouquet, hints of damp moss developing, the 40% whole cluster nicely integrated and lending freshness. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, gently gripping the mouth with notes of raspberry, mulberry and sea salt. It does feel a little conservative compared to other 2015s that I have tasted, though it is undeniably proportioned and focused. I would just like more personality to be conveyed, though I wager that will develop with requisite cellaring.

Score: 90 - 92
