Echezeaux Faiveley 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is also exuberantly fresh if quite restrained with a lovely spice character to the primarily red currant suffused nose. I very much like the complexity of the seductively textured medium weight flavors that brim with dry extract on the racy, intense and balanced finish...91-93." BH 1/14 “(from a warm southern exposure in the lieu-dit Combe d'Orveaux; aging in two-thirds new oak): Medium red. Aromas of red cherry, cinnamon and earth. Silky, suave and sweet, with a slightly candied quality to the cherry, spice and mint flavors. Savory, stylish Echezeaux with a long, saline, soil-driven finish. This very ripe wine will nonetheless require four or five years of cellaring to absorb some of its tannins...91-94” Stephen Tanzer, VM
