Grands Echezeaux (0.75 L)
BH:This is still ultra-elegant with its notably floral and highly spiced nose that is classy, expressive and reflects notes both of red and black fruit, anise, sandalwood and rose petal. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension to the attractively textured, well-detailed and layered medium weight plus flavors that deliver excellent length on the ever-so-mildly edgy finish. This is not a power example of the vineyard but it is one of the more refined versions of the vineyard that you’re likely to try. In terms of drinkability this is still on the way up and for my taste will need another 5 to 7 years first.
