This too is aromatically quite reserved with its elegant and beautifully layered nose of red currant, plum, lavender, violet and an expansive panoply of spice elements. As is usually the case, there is a bit more size and weight to the big-bodied, powerful and muscular flavors that possess both terrific delineation and energy, all wrapped in a super-saline and hugely long finish where a touch of wood gradually emerges. This is a wine that could be enjoyed after only 5-ish or so years of cellaring while retaining the ability to generously recompense 15+. Note: from a .50 ha parcel with vines that range from 20 to 60 years of age with the average being about 25 years old; 75% whole clusters Drink: 2036+
The 2019 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru, matured with 75% whole bunch, is another step up from the Echézeaux. It was the first to finish its malolactic, and it is endowed with intense black fruit, shaved black truffle, freshly rolled tobacco and just a hint of hoisin, all displaying wonderful definition and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins. A "vertical" Grands Echézeaux, it offers almost piercing penetration, live-wire acidity and a very poised finish that, dare I say, reminded me of the Grands Echézeaux from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. This is very classy and it should evolve into quite a profound wine. Just four barrels produced instead of the usual six. 2025 - 2050
