Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Echézeaux Grand Cru from Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair has a slightly disjointed nose at first, but it melds together nicely in the glass, revealing pure blackberry and raspberry fruit, heather and fresh mint notes with aeration. There is focus and intensity here that builds before you. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, very well-judged acidity, cohesive and voluminous with a very precise finish that indicates some very clever, judicious winemaking. This is an Echézeaux from the top drawer, confirming previous bottles that have excelled.
