Medium red. Aromas of wild red berries, mocha, tobacco and underbrush. Creamy-ripe and voluptuous, with just enough acidity to give shape to the red fruit, coffee and mineral flavors. This saturates every square millimeter of the palate and finishes with explosive, building length, with the tannins buried under a wave of fruit. Should evolve in bottle for a long time.

Tasted at the Comte Liger-Belair vertical at the Chateau de Vosne. The 2009 Echezeaux Grand Cru has a delightful bouquet even if it has to shrug off a little reduction. There are plush red cherry and raspberry fruit, rose petals and candied orange peel scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fine acidity, quite tannic and almost like a 2010 in style than 2009. It does not quite deliver the sustain on the finish but it should age nicely over the next 15 to 20 years. Tasted June 2015.
