Ratings and Tasting Notes:
WA=95 The 2019 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru is showing beautifully, unwinding in the glass with deep-pitched aromas of cherries, plums, orange rind, incense and spices. Full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, it's elegantly muscular, with a layered core of fruit, powdery tannins and lively acids, concluding with a long, penetrating finish. This is a brilliant wine that represents relative value in the constellation of top Vosne-Romanée/Flagey-Echézeaux Grands crus.
AM=91-93 An attractively floral nose exhibits notes of rose petal, violet and lavender along with ripe black pinot fruit, plum, spice wisps and a dollop of wood toast. The very rich, even opulent, large-bodied flavours are at once sleek but plush, all wrapped in a sappy and sneaky long finish that is also clearly intended for extended cellaring. This will need to develop more depth over time but that should be possible given the depth of the underlying material.
