($383) Medium red. Blacker fruits on the nose, lifted by violet and mineral nuances. A step beyond the Echezeaux in sweetness, texture and power. Fuller and more complex, with sappy dark berries complicated by leather and minerals. Finishes with round, sweet tannins and excellent length.

Lightish ruby. Sumptuously melded nose. Very firm, brisk palate entry, rather focussed, energetic wine – quite different from the Echézeaux’s more blurred impression. Lots of firm fruit here almost masks the considerable tannic charge. Particularly long finish with autumnal notes.

Highly expressive scents of flowers, perfume, and black cherries can be found in the aromatic profile of the 2002 Grands-Echezeaux. Satin-textured in the attack, its pretty, pepper-laced black berry-flavored personality is light to medium-bodied and lacks the persistence expected from a grand cru. In addition, some bitterness can be detected in its tannic finish.

The aromas of red berry and cocoa powder are fleeting, with red fruits and spice on the palate. A wine of finesse and medium weight, showing elegance and harmony. Offers a fine, lingering aftertaste. Non-blind 2002 DRC tasting (February 2005). Best from 2014 through 2030.

Ruby colored with a beautiful aroma of flowers, minerals and notes of perfume with some cherry in the background. On the palate some dark berries and even a hint of pepper. The finish fell a little short.
