Professional Reviews For This Wine

Burghound | Rating: 94

(from the sub-climat of Les Cruots, also known as Vignes Blanches) Here the nose is spicy and ripe but brooding, serious and backward with aromas running toward dark berry fruit, earth, game and smoke that introduce intense, powerful and sleekly muscled full-bodied flavors supported by equally firm tannins and a vibrant, intense and mouth coating finish. This is almost as serious as the Clos de Vougeot and will likely require just as much patience for it to arrive at its majority. This is a first class knockout.

($155) Deep ruby-red. Knockout brooding nose offers dark fruits, smoke, leather and musky Cuban tobacco. Wonderfully silky and thick on entry, then impressively dense without any heaviness in the middle palate. Hugely concentrated wine with superb sucrosite This spreads out to saturate the entire palate with black raspberry fruit and subtle earth tones. Can't quite match the Suchots for delicacy but this boasts outstanding breadth and class. A great example of Echezeaux.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93-94

Grivot's 2005 Echezeaux leads with black raspberry and tart, high-toned red raspberry, fresh ginger, orange zest, black truffle, and wisps of wood smoke. Bright, high-toned, berry essences and pungent spice and smokiness dominate in the mouth as well, with a superb concentration and purity of sweet, creamy fruit coating the palate. Low-toned minerals and meat stock emerge in the wine's long finish, but its energetic, invigorating brightness and primary sweetness of fruit remain undiminished.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Purity and elegance are the hallmarks of this silky red. Black currant, violet, plum and mineral notes convene on the palate, as the supple texture gives way to beefy tannins. Be patient, this is just a baby.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
