Tasting Notes

The 2014 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru has a gorgeous bouquet that actually reminds me of the late great Philippe Engel in terms of its purity and articulation of terroir. This is going to be very seductive. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin and plush in the mouth, but that belies the structure underneath. Beautifully balanced with a smooth finish that is an absolute delight. This is simply a wonderful wine that will repay time in bottle. It is a stunning success.

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (222), December 2015

Noticeable but still discreet wood is present on the strikingly spicy, cool and distinctly more floral-inflected nose that consists mostly of red berry and plum scents. The robust and muscular medium-bodied plus flavors possess plenty of muscle yet the dense supporting tannins remain relatively fine on the complex, austere and hugely long finish. This serious and very firm effort is definitely going to require extended cellaring.
