Scores and tasting notes
The 2016 Echézeaux Grand Cru was affected 40% by the frost this vintage. It has a crisp and focused bouquet with blackberry, raspberry preserve, cold slate and light marine aromas that blossom with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, one of the most rounded Echézeauxs that I have tasted from the domaine at this early stage. Then the acidity kicks in midway and lends a needed citrus bent to the last third. Not quite up there with the 2015, yet this still has a lot of potential.
