Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(AG=91-93) -The 2017 Echezeaux Grand Cru has an attractive bouquet with quite earthy red berry fruit, more floral aromas emerging with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, just a hint of vanilla tincturing the red berry fruit with allspice and clove towards the finish. Give this three or four years once in bottle.
(AM=89-92) - An exuberantly fresh and spicy nose speaks of various red berries, especially red currant, along with hints of sandalwood and Asian-style tea. There is fine intensity to the solidly concentrated medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a noticeably warm and slightly clipped and short finish. This is presently somewhat awkward and while it could well come together, I suspect that the warmth will always be apparent.
