    Other Reviews....
    Notes of cherries, berries, licorice, spices and incense introduce the 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru, a medium to full-bodied, muscular and youthfully chewy wine that's a little firm and compact at this stage, though I suspect it will flesh out with further élevage.

    William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Feb 2020)

    The 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a decadent bouquet of red cherry and cranberry aromas, touches of pain d’épices and a hint of menthol emerging with time. But somehow it manages to retain control. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, slightly chalky tannins, good depth and a gentle grip toward the focused finish. This should age extremely well.

    Neal Martin - Vinous

    From the Champ Traversin sector. Intense fine purple in colour, with a bouquet that has avoided the heat of the summer and is rather more strict, fresh and crisp in style. Dark fruit, crystalline, complex and the finish maintains this comparative austerity.
