Bright red. Dark raspberry, licorice, spicy sweet oak and a peppery whiff on the nose. Then sweet and lush in the mouth; bigger, richer and fuller than the premier crus but without quite the definition of the Feusselottes. Still, there's no undue heaviness here, and a hint of orange peel on the back gives lift to the aftertaste.

inner perfume and a layered, eternal finish. Here the slightly higher percentage of new oak (70%) gives the wine an additional measure of volume. The Echezeaux is made from two parcels; Les Rouges du Bas (just in front of Clos Vougeot) and Les Quartiers de Nuits (next to Clos Vougeot) vinified together. Everything of the Echezeaux is first-class.

Light, bright crimson. Quite rich with some real depth and great cleanliness and precision. Far from the richest Ech‚zeaux from this address but very pretty. Long. There's grip here.
