Echezeaux 2015 Jean Grivot
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2015 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a powerful bouquet that harnesses the warmth of the growing season without losing one iota of the delineation: dark cherries intermingle with mulberry, chestnut, a touch of leather and white pepper - very complex and involving. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannin on the entry. This is brimming over with energy and tension, a vein of orange rind interwoven through the red fruit with a dash of black pepper towards the structured finish. This is an outstanding Echézeaux from Etienne Grivot.

Initially shows some earth and animal aromas that give way to high-toned leafy, green, currant and cherry notes with air. Elegant, refined and vibrant, this persists through the long finish, revealing fruit, spice and mineral elements.
