2013 Echezeaux DRC

Only 1 bottle left
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. Tasted February 2016 Read more

Antonio Galloni MW - Vinous

Introverted and compact, the 2013 Échézeaux nevertheless possesses remarkable depth. In this vintage, the Échézeaux feels quite ripe and intense, but there is plenty of underlying structure as well. Today, there is an almost exotic quality to the fruit.

Jancis Robinson MW

Dark crimson. Chock-a-block with fruit and then mildly swathed in the softest leather. Very gorgeous. Hint of black pepper. So lovely already. Muscular. Fans out on the palate. Really exciting. Very fine. 18.5/20 points.
