Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 29

(from the sub-climat of Les Cruots, also known as Vignes Blanches) Here the nose is spicy and ripe but brooding, serious and backward with aromas running toward dark berry fruit, earth, game and smoke that introduce intense, powerful and sleekly muscled full-bodied flavors supported by equally firm tannins and a vibrant, intense and mouth coating finish. This is almost as serious as the Clos de Vougeot and will likely require just as much patience for it to arrive at its majority. This is a first class knockout.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 137

($155) Deep ruby-red. Knockout brooding nose offers dark fruits, smoke, leather and musky Cuban tobacco. Wonderfully silky and thick on entry, then impressively dense without any heaviness in the middle palate. Hugely concentrated wine with superb sucrosite This spreads out to saturate the entire palate with black raspberry fruit and subtle earth tones. Can't quite match the Suchots for delicacy but this boasts outstanding breadth and class. A great example of Echezeaux.

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 170

Grivot's 2005 Echezeaux leads with black raspberry and tart, high-toned red raspberry, fresh ginger, orange zest, black truffle, and wisps of wood smoke. Bright, high-toned, berry essences and pungent spice and smokiness dominate in the mouth as well, with a superb concentration and purity of sweet, creamy fruit coating the palate. Low-toned minerals and meat stock emerge in the wine's long finish, but its energetic, invigorating brightness and primary sweetness of fruit remain undiminished.

Wine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson

Purity and elegance are the hallmarks of this silky red. Black currant, violet, plum and mineral notes convene on the palate, as the supple texture gives way to beefy tannins. Be patient, this is just a baby.
