There is an excellent sense of underlying tension to the almost racy medium-bodied flavors that possess fine delineation on the firm, youthfully austere and palate soaking finish. This is quite structured but not really hard but thanks to the abundant dry extract, a wine that should be accessible in its youth. collapse

Inviting aromas of black raspberry, tobacco, gingerbread and honey. Large-scaled, saline Echézeaux in a rather cool style, conveying modest sweetness but excellent focus. Very concentrated but youthfully imploded, and clearly in a closed phase. The cool, rather linear finish displays slightly tough tannins. This highly concentrated wine will need time in bottle to develop more generosity of texture.- ST collapse

On the palate, it's full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with rich but supple tannins, a deep and concentrated core of fruit, lively acids and a long, thrillingly carnal finish. This is a beautifully made Echézeaux from this challenging frost vintage. - William Kelley collapse
