Tasting Notes

Here is heaven in glass. The 2002 Grands Echezeaux possesses one of those bouquets that stops you in your tracks and makes you wonder whether it is worth ever drinking another Pinot Noir again. Sensational red cherry, wild strawberry and bergamot scents abound with a sense of translucency that could bring a tear to the eye, so have your tissues ready. The palate is tense and shimmers in the glass, the acidity nigh on perfect, the texture satin-like and the finish brimming with energy undimmed by bottle age. There is no greater way to remember the late Philippe Engel. Simply fabulous.

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (215), October 2014

Aged in 100% new oak, the 2002 Grands-Echezeaux bursts from the glass with candied red cherry aromas. This beautiful, precise, juicy effort is medium-bodied, concentrated, and deep. Assorted red fruits are intermingled with spices in this highly expressive and complex wine's personality. Projected maturity: 2007-2017.
