    Here is heaven in glass. The 2002 Grands Echezeaux possesses one of those bouquets that stops you in your tracks and makes you wonder whether it is worth ever drinking another Pinot Noir again. Sensational red cherry, wild strawberry and bergamot scents abound with a sense of translucency that could bring a tear to the eye, so have your tissues ready. The palate is tense and shimmers in the glass, the acidity nigh on perfect, the texture satin-like and the finish brimming with energy undimmed by bottle age. There is no greater way to remember the late Philippe Engel. Simply fabulous.

    Loads of sweet fruit here and the depth and class of a grand cru . Very stylish oak spice is well-integrated into the berry, mineral and smoke flavors of this concentrated, silky red. The acidity and tannins are harmonious and it finishes with a sandalwood aftertaste.

    As is usually the case chez Engel, this is the class of the cellar with very spicy black fruit aromas leading to robust, powerful and moderately structured flavors that offer excellent intensity and fine finishing persistence. Despite the rugged tannins in evidence today, this is more accessible than it usually is and I suspect it will accessible relatively early yet be capable of holding well. A lovely if forward effort.
