BH 94
Burghound, January 2009
As it usually is relative to the Echézeaux the restrained nose is distinctly more reserved but classier with a wonderfully intense and layered nose that is more floral still while offering up a variety of spice notes... As it usually is relative to the Echézeaux the restrained nose is distinctly more reserved but classier with a wonderfully intense and layered nose that is more floral still while offering up a variety of spice notes including anise clove and soy that can also be found on the pure and sleekly muscled flavors that possess real drive indeed this does a slow but sure build from the mid-palate on through the explosive finish. This is an interesting wine in that the natural robustness of a fine GE is present but the natural elegance of the vintage tames it somewhat and one could quite accurately describe the '06 GE as robustly elegant yet distinctly understated and not be wrong. Despite the elegance this will need plenty of cellar time. Drink: 2021+
