(WA91-93 points) The 2012 Echezeaux Grand Cru comes from the 0.38-hectare parcel not far from those belonging to DRC with vines planted north to south. It has a powerful bouquet with abundant black and red berry fruit infused with dried flowers and a touch of spice. This is quite an extrovert bouquet for an Echezeaux. The palate is medium-bodied and is more restrained than the aromatics at the moment, with supple, linear, slightly chalky tannins that encase the brambly red berry profile. It cruises along nicely towards a tense, citrus-driven finish that just needs to develop a little more persistency in the mouth in order to complete the package. - Neal Martin

(BH90-93 points) A highly spiced nose of very ripe aromas of cassis, black cherry and sandalwood leads to lavishly rich middle weight plus flavors that brim with buckets of dry extract that completely coat the palate as well as buffers the firm tannic spine on the impressively long finish. This is a highly seductive effort that isn't presently as complex as the Clos de Vougeot. This will most please those who enjoy opulent burgs that can be enjoyed young though note that there is plenty of aging potential here.

Very deep but unforthcoming nose hints at black raspberry, violet and minerals, with complicating torrefaction notes of chocolate and coffee. Boasts outstanding thickness without weight but shows a distinctly austere menthol quality and a long, slowly mounting finish indicating the balance to age. This may have been harvested late, but the black fruit, earth and spice qualities give this wine terrific drinkability. Finishes with very suave, fine-grained tannins. With its velour-like texture and superb intensity, I give this wine the edge over the Chambertin. 93+
