Scores and tasting notes
The 2014 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a sense of volume on the nose, which is fairly uncommon in this vintage, with copious black cherries, raspberry coulis and pomegranate scents that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is very pure, silky in the mouth and very harmonious with a silver bead of acidity threaded from start to finish; it maintains a sense of symmetry and linearity through to the sustained finish. This has very fine precision, but like others, it will need several years in bottle.

The 2014 Echézeaux Grand Cru delivered in barrel, but more crucially, would it deliver in bottle... when you might be able to drink it? Well, the answer is yes. It has a very pure blueberry, raspberry and mint-tinged bouquet that opens nicely in the glass, almost Suchots-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a silver bead of acidity. It feels saline in the mouth with superb cohesion towards the finish. Everything is in its right place here and although I can see this closing down for some time, it should ultimately turn into an outstanding Echezeaux. Tasted November 2016.
