Echezeaux 2011 Jean Grivot
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Echézeaux 2011 has a well-defined bouquet with raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, and just a slight charred tincture (and it is really only a tincture) in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with quite light tannins for a grand cru, but the fruit is detailed with raspberry, blackberry and cranberry segueing into quite a tertiary finish. This improves with aeration attaining more delineation as it opens.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
A vibrant, mineral- and spice-tinged version, showing a core of red berry. Firm and linear, with a dense, compact finish. Stays long, revealing an oaky aftertaste.
