The 2016 Echezeaux Grand Cru does not come from the domaine this year since their own fruit was supplemented with purchased grapes. It has a pretty bouquet with vibrant red cherry and raspberry fruit laced with crushed stone and damp undergrowth scents. The palate is well defined on the entry with a gentle grip, the concentration already apparent but countered by a fine thread of acidity. The finish is just a tad straightforward but otherwise, this is a finely crafted Echezeaux, if not quite up there with the 2015.
Drink Date: 2020 - 2038
