The 2020 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru comprises of two and a half barrels this year. This has an unapologetically mineral-soaked bouquet: exquisite details and focus, plenty of dark fruit that seems to gain volume with time. The palate is medium-bodied with velvety tannins, blood orange infused red fruit with an elegant finish that knows there is no need to show off. Pure class.
1.5 new barrels and one older one. A fine deep purple, Here the bouquet is extra classy not just lush ripe fruit. This opens out on a really grand scale, an early malolactic again, seamless, red and black fruit intertwined, just under 14%, very harmonious, dark raspberry. Yes please.
