BOW (8.5)

Parker (94)

The 2016 Echézeaux Grand Cru was affected by the frost: 40% to 45% of the vines were lost. Etienne said that the lieu-dit of Les Créots is an incredible vineyard and managed to overcome what could have been much worse damage. It has a beautiful, sensual, very pure bouquet with Morello, crushed strawberry and hints of vanilla pod. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and gorgeous black cherry and tart redcurrant fruit. It does not possess the length or density of the 2015, although I feel it shrugged off the frost damage better than Grivot's Clos Vougeot.
