Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 93-95

Things really take off with the 2010 Echezeaux, which is a meaningful step up from the earlier wines in this tasting. The 2010 surprises for its size and sheer volume. It boasts phenomenal depth and richness in its intense dark red fruit. The sheer energy and vibrancy of the fruit is remarkable. A huge, explosive finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. This is a great showing from the Echezeaux, even if the 2010 is notably bigger than is typical for this bottling. The Echezeaux was the last fruit to be picked in 2010.

Burghound | Rating: 94

Exuberant and ripe spicy purple fruit also exhibits distinct floral and warm earth nuances that go on to suffuse the rich and finely detailed medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent underlying tension before terminating in a focused, intense and gorgeously long finish. This is pure silk and lace but the really impressive aspect of this wine is just how much depth it has. A sublime knockout, particularly by the usual standards of this wine.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93(+?)

Good bright, deep red. Superb precision to the aromas of black cherry, dark raspberry and Oriental spices. Intensely flavored and bracing, with terrific saline energy to the flavors of red berries, white pepper and blood orange. Showing more fruit intensity today than the Corton. Leaves the palate tingling on the long, vibrant aftertaste. A superb vintage for this cuvee . Aubert de Villaine noted that he vinified his 2010 reds with 60% to 80% whole clusters, with the higher percentage generally used for vines affected by millerandage .

This red offers forward aromas and flavors of strawberry and cherry, with a herbaceous hint of mint on an elegant, harmonious frame.'Non-blind 2010 DRC tasting (March 2013).

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.
