Jean Grivot Echézeaux 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Curiously, this is less expressive still though aggressive swirling coaxes notes of seductive black fruit and spice notes to reveal themselves. The rich, suave, pure and dense flavors are a highly beguiling blend of finesse and power, all wrapped in a robust yet finely detailed finish of stunning length. This is one of the very best examples of the appellation in 2009...93-96" BH 01/11 "The 2009 Echezeaux is pure silk. Black cherries, spices, licorice and tar are all woven together in a fabric of nearly indescribable elegance. All the elements fall into place as the Echezeaux captivates both the intellectual and hedonistic senses. This is a wine that impresses for its understated elegance. Readers won’t fine the drive of the Clos de Vougeot or the structure of the Richebourg. Instead, the Echezeaux possesses stunning textural finesse and phenomenal balance...95" WA 04/12
