Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

92-95 BH / 92-94 WA / 18 JR

Note: from a .50 ha parcel with vines that range from 20 to 60 years of age with the average being about 25 years old

Tasting note: There is an interesting hint of mandarin orange to the notably ripe but equally restrained aromas of black cherry, rose petal, cassis and a wide range of spice elements. Like the Ech this is a big, muscular and concentrated effort with excellent size, weight and punch to the broad-shouldered flavors that culminate in a palate coating, serious and strikingly long finish. This is even more firmly structured and at least moderate patience will be necessary. Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2016 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru comprises three barrels this year (two new) with around 60% whole bunch fruit. This was closed at first, so I afforded it five minutes, then it revealed blackberry, briary, cold wet limestone and light violet scents. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, a little more structured than the Echézeaux and more saline with some chewiness on the finish. It will require several years in bottle. It is a very fine wine, although my preference at this early juncture would be for the 2015 that I tasted last year. Neal Martin - The Wine Advocate

Just three barrels from one hectare, of which two were new. 60% whole bunch.
Very dark. Real life and zest on the nose. Heady, super-ripe with a light floral element but fresh too. Very glamorous and dramatic. Lots of exuberance but all in a tight corset. Much richer than the Échezeaux. Tighter than DRC, for instance. Less relaxed but certainly ambitious. Not at all heavy. Lift on the palate. Clean finish that slowly builds.
