Tasting Notes

Vinous – 93

The 2016 Echézeaux de Dessus Grand Cru certainly offers one of the better aromatics from this vineyard with raspberry, crushed strawberry and cranberry aromas, tertiary top notes emerging with aeration in the glass. The oak feels neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, quite mineral-driven and spicy with a sorbet-like finish where the oak is just a tad too prominent. There is great potential here and time should round off some of its edges. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. [Neal Martin, 22/10/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2023-2045

Robert Parker – 92-94

“Hit 50% by the frost, the 2016 Echezeaux du Dessus Grand Cru, which Cécile Tremblay believes was affected less because the vines are trained Cordon Royat at a higher height than Guyot Simple. It has delightful and (again) very pure and seductive bouquet with ample black cherries, blackcurrant and blueberry aromas, sutured perfectly with new oak (50% here). The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet, licorice-tinged entry that merges into a mid-palate packed to the rafters with black and red fruit. But this is not an overpowering Echézeaux and it maintains superb focus all the way through to the finish. This is as good as the 2015 and may even surpass it.” [Neal Martin, 29/12/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2038

JancisRobinson.com – 18

Barrel sample. Blackish crimson. Blackberry compote. Perfumed and rich and a sweet interpretation of Échezeaux. Very round – a sort of junior DRC?! Very rich and it would be easy to like even now. Very dramatic and ambitious with round tannins and great allure. Very appetising. Quite a marvel! Though not at the moment very long…? [29/11/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2036
