The 2014 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru has a much more complex and nuanced bouquet compared to the 2014 Echézeaux, with lively red berry fruit intermingling with minerals. It gains intensity in the glass while retaining its composure. The palate is grippy on the entry with good density -- a compact but delineated Grands Echézeaux that will require bottle age. It is more masculine than others I have tasted, but it has the body and breeding you look for.

The moderate wood this displayed from barrel has been almost completely integrated and easily allows the overtly spicy mixture of various red berry fruit scents that are generously laced with tea, lilac, violet and sandalwood wisps to be appreciated. There is fine concentration to the powerful, focused and sleekly muscular flavors that also coat the palate with dry extract that also serves to buffer the firm tannic spine on the balanced and impressively long finale. This manages to be at once serious yet seductive and I particularly like the sophisticated mouth feel. Note that while still very young this should drink reasonably well early?
