The deep and primary nose wafts from the glass in a mix of black cherries, raspberries, venison, coffee, chocolate, herb tones and toasty new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still quite primary in personality, with a plump core of fruit, lovely soil signature waiting in the wines to unfold, ripe, beautifully integrated tannins and a long, tangy finish that closes with excellent length and grip. This is a puppy, but will be an excellent vintage of DRC Echézeaux in the fullness of time.

Saturated ruby-red. Perfumed fruit-driven aromas of black cherry and cassis. Thick concentrated enticingly bright fruit and spice flavors. This has the density and extract of a top '98.

This has the density and extract of a top '98. Finishes with substantial but ripe tannins. An impressive early showing for this wine.

Explosive fruit of blackberries vanilla and oriental spice with extremely ripe relatively supple black fruit round sexy flavors underpinned by good structure ripe tannins and fine acid/fruit balance. This is still very tight but there is good vigor indeed even force behind this wine. One of the better DRC Echézeaux in a long time in fact as good as the terrific '88 though stylistically different.

Dense sweet and pliant with lovely subtle oakiness. Impressively concentrated Echezeaux that really builds in the mouth. Perfectly harmonious acidity combines with smooth tannins on the back end.
