The 2016 Echézeaux Grand Cru, which unlike the Clos Vougeot was severely hit by the frost, was missing some fruité on the nose, stubborn and rather withdrawn. The palate is medium-bodied with broad tannin, good acidity but there is sense that the frost denuded this grand cru of its nobility, thus the finish feels rather smudged and monotone. I found this disappointing because of what happened in the vineyard rather than any winemaking fault.
