The 2014 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a similar nose to the 2014 Vosne Beaumonts, that is to say, a mixture of red and black fruit with sous-bois and autumn leaf scents lending this complexity (these probably emanating from the 20% whole bunch fruit). The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannin, black cherries, raspberry, sea salt and a little quince, broadening out towards the finish that is tensile but remains quite broody. There is a sense of nascent confidence about this Echézeaux from Maxime Chuerlin.
Intense and heady. Transparent but very rich too. Needs lots of time.
