Notes From the Winemaker:
Elegant and sumptuous. Often has scents of violet and spices. Matures earlier than our other grand crus. In its youth it is fragrant and silky becoming deep and full when it matures. A round wine which is rarely very tannic. May be kept 8 to 10 years. Our favourite wine at home when we are having a pheasant or guineafowl.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"Gorgeous, exquisite nose, with lifted red fruits, almost minty. Rich but supple, very concentrated, but fine-grained tannins. Palate is intense and lifted, with purity but not at the expense of force. Excellent length. Drinking Window 2016 - 2028" - Stephen Brook (May 2015)

93 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"There is an herbal hint on the black fruit liqueur, spice and earthy aromas. This is a relatively big yet refined effort that possesses an admirable amount of mid-palate density as there is plenty palate staining dry extract on the linear and muscular finish that imparts a textured, even opulent mouth feel. This should drink well both young and old." - (Jan 15, 2014)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Echézeaux 2011 has a well-defined bouquet with raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, and just a slight charred tincture (and it is really only a tincture) in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with quite light tannins for a grand cru, but the fruit is detailed with raspberry, blackberry and cranberry segueing into quite a tertiary finish. This improves with aeration attaining more delineation as it opens." - Special Interim Issue Report, The Wine Advocate (29th Nov 2014)

92 Points - Vinous:
"A wine that develops beautifully in the glass, the 2011 Echézeaux shows all of the softness and sensuality that makes so many wines in this vintage appealing young. Dried red cherries, crushed flowers, mint and licorice meld together nicely in a supple, expressive Burgundy. Slightly green notes come through from time to time, but they are nicely balanced by the depth of the fruit." - Antonio Galloni (Mar 2014)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A vibrant, mineral- and spice-tinged version, showing a core of red berry. Firm and linear, with a dense, compact finish. Stays long, revealing an oaky aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2027. 60 cases imported." - BS (Jun 15, 2014)
