Grands Echezeaux (0.75 L)
A more subtle application of oak frames the overtly floral and relatively high-toned aromas of red cherry and currant where added breadth is present in the form of sandalwood and spicy Asian-style tea. The seductively textured and acceptably concentrated if not especially dense medium-bodied flavors possess reasonable power and volume on the lingering and nicely complex finale. This is classy and certainly very pretty but I was somewhat disappointed with this given its usual excellent quality.
