Smooth, polished, silky and elegant, unfolding raspberry, smoke, toast, game and plum flavors that persist into a long, luscious finish. Has scratchy tannins to lose, but the goods to age.

The 1991 Echezeaux is light-bodied for a Jayer wine, as well as more compact and austere. The wine offers an attractive floral, berry-scented nose, spicy, medium-bodied, moderately concentrated flavors, and noticeably hard, astringent tannin in the finish.
