Description

Echezeaux wines are a clear garnet or ruby red, the exact hue often varying considerably. When young these wines have vanilla-scented, smoky, woody aromas or a hint of torrefaction, combined with suggestions of red fruits and spices. After a few years the nose becomes vegetable or animal, with scents of mushrooms, truffles or woodland undergrowth. The great complexity of the bouquet makes this a wine both rich and feminine; fat and mellow, with fine, delicate and fairly supple tannins. In the mouth the attack is spirited, the balance pleasant and there is a succulent fullness with aromas of red fruits.

Review

Though ripe, delivering black cherry, blackberry, black currant, earth and spice flavors, there is a defining beam of acidity coursing through this red, along with nicely integrated tannins. Succulent and balanced, firming up as this plays out on the long finish. Best from 2026 through 2045.
