Tasting Notes

The Echezeaux, from the Domaine’s vines in the excellent climat Les Rouges du Bas, is normally a standout in the Jadot range, and 2016 does not disappoint despite the heavy frost here. Notes of wood smoke, ripe cherry, rich soil and grilled gamebird are followed by a full-bodied, expansive wine with elegant tannins, impressive breadth and good balancing acidity. This is quite giving in personality this year.

Score: 94William Kelley,, January 2018

**Note: from Les Rouges du Bas that is worked by horse because it is so steep**
Here too there is noticeable menthol influence but in this case it's considerably more modulated on the exuberantly spicy, ripe and well-layered nose of earth, violet and dark berries. The rich, round and velvety flavors are blessed with an abundance of dry extract that coats the mouth and buffers the robust tannins on the firm and exceptionally long finish where the wood resurfaces.
