Tasting Notes

**Note: from Les Rouges du Bas that is worked by horse because it is so steep**
This is very ripe though the black berry liqueur and spice aromas stop just short of surmaturité. The equally ripe, suave and caressing velvet-textured flavors display a mocha component on the slightly sweet and warm finish. As the description suggests, this was somewhat awkward though because of the excellent underlying material my range assumes that this manages to recover with time in bottle. I underscore though that is a prediction, not a guarantee.

**Note: from Les Rouges du Bas that is worked by horse because it is so steep**
This is quite ripe though the red and black berry liqueur and spice aromas stop just short of surmaturité. The equally ripe, suave and caressing velvet-textured flavors display good length on the very firm and borderline tough but not hard finish. My sense is that this will eventually resolve the presently rigid tannins but I would not recommend this as a 2015 for early consumption; indeed I would suggest not touching a bottle for at least 10 years.

The 2015 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a perfumed bouquet, a mixture of black and blue fruit, perhaps just a little smudged compared to others I have tasted, but with very impressive vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red berry fruit, rounded and velvety in texture, gently building to an assured finish. If it can muster a notch more precision on the nose, then it may well deserve a higher evaluation, but it remains a very delicious and enticing prospect.

Score: 92/94Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (228), December 2016

Jadot's 2015 Echézeaux Grand Cru is showing brilliantly from bottle, offering up a youthfully reserved but beautifully pure nose of raspberry, black cherry, rose petal, violet, subtle incense and a nicely integrated framing of new oak. On the palate, the wine is ample, full-bodied and succulent, with bright acids and a superb sense of control despite its scale, its tannins fine-grained but formidable. To reiterate, this is firmly shut down at present, and while its potential is considerable it is likely to remain that way for a good decade.
