Tasted at Roberson’s Echezeaux tasting. The Engel does not quite have the definition on Arnoux’s 2002 when contrasted side by side. Very good lift, ripe raspberry and wild strawberry...I like the refinement and the naturalness here. Gaining intensity and coalescing in the glass. The palate is a little more tart, more pointed than the Arnoux, very vibrant and vigorous with clean crisp red-berries and mulberry, shot through with a citrus edge. This is just drinking beautifully now. I just would have liked a little more length, but that is just quibbling. This is a beautiful wine from the late Philip Engel. Drink now-2018+ Tasted October 2009.
A second outing for this wine in the same week. This bottle in Hong Kong had a pink-red colour, and was fully open to business with a beautiful floral perfume, underlaid with cherry notes. The wine was more elegant than the bottle in London, while hours in the glass only enhanced the perfumed fruit.
