Grands Echezeaux 2013 Drouhin, Joseph
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2013 Grands Echézeaux comes from old vines and includes around 15% whole-cluster fruit. It has a very ripe and opulent bouquet with dark plum and mulberry with light violet scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannins, very good density, backward compared to Drouhin’s other 2013s, with density and presence on the finish. This is a Grands Echezeaux demanding to be taken seriously. You should heed its advice.

Cherry and currant aromas gain depth on the palate from the spice and mineral elements. Elegant, racy and long, this gets support courtesy of the dense, dusty tannins.
