Grands Echézeaux, Domaine d'Eugénie 2016

Tasting Notes

A huge step up. Rich dense black purple, the nose has more in common with Brûlées than Echezeaux. This is pretty much majestic, completely filling the middle palate, with a huge weight of glorious ripe pinot, yet still with abundant freshness. Tasted: October 2017

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, October 2017

There is an interesting hint of mandarin orange to the notably ripe but equally restrained aromas of black cherry, rose petal, cassis and a wide range of spice elements. Like the Ech this is a big, muscular and concentrated effort with excellent size, weight and punch to the broad-shouldered flavors that culminate in a palate coating, serious and strikingly long finish. This is even more firmly structured and at least moderate patience will be necessary. Drink: 2031+
