Winemaker's Notes

Beautiful dark color. The wine is well balanced and structured as regards to tannin/acidity. In the mouth, very typical of the vintage: somewhat reserved, but above all, showing opulent body and depth that augur a lovely evolution in the bottle.

Critical Acclaim

" A ripe, elegant and densely fruited nose exudes notes of violets, sandalwood, anise and dried black berries that precede supple, rich and attractively voluminous flavors that retain a fine sense of underlying detail on the wonderfully intense, persistent and quite firm finish. This is an absolutely stunning wine and every bit as good as the genuinely remarkable 2005."
94 Points

"This red offers forward aromas and flavors of strawberry and cherry, with a herbaceous hint of mint on an elegant, harmonious frame.—Non-blind 2010 DRC tasting (March 2013). Best from 2016 through 2032"
92 Points

"This is not a great showing for the 2009 Echezeaux. Today the structural elements seem to dominate the wine’s balance. I find little of the seduction and charm the Echezeaux showed when its was in barrel. It is hard to believe this is a representative bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.

"Good bright, dark red. High-pitched, expressive aromas of raspberry, strawberry, minerals, pepper, wild herbs and flowers. Initially quite tight and peppery, with a dry-edged character, this slightly raw wine expanded somewhat with aeration. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and an impression of peppery austerity. The most inscrutable of this set of wines today.
Rating: 91(+?)?"
