A brooding and deeply pitched nose of red currant, cassis, violets, earth and exuberant spice notes. There is excellent volume to the very rich, round and pure medium-bodied flavors that possess highly sophisticated tannins that are already well integrated on the powerful, focused and stunningly long finish. This is generous to the point of opulence on the mid-palate yet there is again faultless balance that suggests that this should age effortlessly. This is bigger, richer and more powerful than the Reignots but not longer and certainly less refined.

Medium red. Knockout perfume of redcurrant, iron, dried flowers and clove oil. At once creamy and juicy, with terrific lift and inner-mouth tension to its fine-grained flavors of raspberry, strawberry, spices and flowers. Boasts a wonderful balance of sweetness, savoriness and sap, but seems to be shutting down today. Compellingly aromatic and electric on the long finish, with the tannins completely buffered by the wine's material. I would not be surprised if this wine merited an even higher score a decade down the road.

Tasted at the Comte Liger-Belair vertical at the Chateau de Vosne. The 2010 Echezeaux Grand Cru is much more closed and broody on the nose compared to the 2009 with hints of tinned apricot tincturing the black cherry and pomegranate fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, fine harmony and tension, gently building to a poised, lightly spiced, almost Richebourg-like finish. This has long-term potential. Tasted June 2015.
