The 2005 Echezeaux delivers ravishingly sweet high-toned aromas of black raspberry maraschino marzipan marmalade and iodine. It saturates the palate with sweet ripe fruit and inner-mouth perfume while introducing layers of fresh meat and shrimp-shell minerality. The texture is amazingly creamy and polished and the long refined finish adds an alluring hint of mocha. Superb saturation of ultra-ripe fruit but with freshness; remarkable concentration yet elegance lift indeed near weightlessness: this is 2005 at its best. The temptation to drink this in its early years will I suspect be irresistible ... let's hope so anyway. It would be a shame for this beauty to be locked away as a collectible even if it is capable of long-aging.-David Schildknecht

The soaring nose of spicy cassis black cherry and violets this displayed from cask has now become very reserved and brooding merging into rich full and utterly delicious flavors that possess a beguiling texture and unusually fine tannins compared to what I typically see with the Ech. This is a big wine by any measure with excellent mid-palate density and superb length. Really good stuff and as the "value" play in the DRC line-up one to strongly consider because it surpasses its normal quality level by more than a fair margin in 2005.

Next to the super-refined, delicate 2006s, the 2005s come across as deeper and richer in personality. That is quite evident in the 2005 Échézeaux, a wonderfully lifted, precise Burgundy that is just starting to blossom... Next to the super-refined, delicate 2006s, the 2005s come across as deeper and richer in personality. That is quite evident in the 2005 Échézeaux, a wonderfully lifted, precise Burgundy that is just starting to blossom. Today, the 2005 is all about nuance and detail. This is a terrific showing. Once again, in 2005 the Échézeaux is a real overachiever. Drinking window: 2018-2045.

Explosive aromas of redcurrant liqueur tobacco tar minerals and chocolate plus hints of decadent underbrush. Sweet redcurrant and mocha flavors show a slightly roasted aspect and elevated alcohol but also possess very good vinosity with complicating soil tones adding nuance. Finishes uncompromisingly dry with substantial tannins. I'd expect this seriously deep wine to go into a shell in the very near future.
