Tasting Notes

The 2013 Echézeaux Grand Cru was picked on October 12 and the following day (in the afternoon, if you want specifics!). Cropped at 15.5 hectoliters per hectare, the lowest of all the domaine's 2013s, it has a fragrant Morello cherry, crushed strawberry-scented bouquet that is precise and nicely focused, if lacking the horsepower of a more benevolent growing season. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp red cherry and strawberry fruit on the entry. Fresh and poised, I am impressed by the weight shown on the mid-palate, so much so that you might be deceived into mistaking it for the Grands Echézeaux or even the Richebourg, albeit on a less scale. There is just a dash of spice towards the finish as it gently fans out and leaves you satisfied. "A quite ambitious Echézeaux in the making," I remarked out of barrel. I would not alter that view now that this lovely Echézeaux is in bottle. Production is 715 cases. - Robert Parker (NM), tasted (3/2016)
