Winemaker's Notes

This powerfully structured wine has intense red fruit and spice aromas and flavors. It will develop in the bottle for 15 to 20 years.

Critical Acclaim

"This is noticeably more restrained, indeed even backwards, than the Ech but even so there is better aromatic complexity and breadth to the otherwise similar nose. There is good power and muscle to the intense, concentrated and well-detailed medium-weight plus flavors that possess a seductively textured, energetic and focused finale that really coats the mouth with extract. I quite like this as the linear finish displays excellent depth of material. For those who have the patience to wait, this should prove to be a superb effort in time.
Barrel Sample: 92-95 Points"

"The 2009 Grands-Echezeaux is a fresh, vibrant wine. Minerality takes center stage in this perfumed, sweet Burgundy. The clenched style calls for patience, but the wine’s potential seems quite high. The finish is vibrant and impeccably polished in every way. The Grands-Echezeaux is made from purchased wine. Not surprisingly, this is totally different in style from the Echezeaux. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034.
92-94 Points"

"Medium red. Reticent but pure aromas of crushed stone, flowers and tobacco. Fat, silky, pliant and broad; not quite as gripping as the Echezeaux but plush and suave. Here the silky tannins are more thoroughly covered by the wine's sweet fruit. This really perfumes the mouth. 92-94 points "
