Exuberant and ripe spicy purple fruit also exhibits distinct floral and warm earth nuances that go on to suffuse the rich and finely detailed medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent underlying tension before terminating in a focused, intense and gorgeously long finish. This is pure silk and lace but the really impressive aspect of this wine is just how much depth it has. A sublime knockout, particularly by the usual standards of this wine.

Good bright, deep red. Superb precision to the aromas of black cherry, dark raspberry and Oriental spices. Intensely flavored and bracing, with terrific saline energy to the flavors of red berries, white pepper and blood orange. Showing more fruit intensity today than the Corton. Leaves the palate tingling on the long, vibrant aftertaste. A superb vintage for this cuvee . Aubert de Villaine noted that he vinified his 2010 reds with 60% to 80% whole clusters, with the higher percentage generally used for vines affected by millerandage .

Things really take off with the 2010 Echezeaux, which is a meaningful step up from the earlier wines in this tasting. The 2010 surprises for its size and sheer volume. It boasts phenomenal depth and richness in its intense dark red fruit. The sheer energy and vibrancy of the fruit is remarkable. A huge, explosive finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. This is a great showing from the Echezeaux, even if the 2010 is notably bigger than is typical for this bottling. The Echezeaux was the last fruit to be picked in 2010.
