The 2012 Echezeaux Grand Cru has a lucid garnet/ruby color. Picked on September 25 with 15% whole cluster fruit, it has a sensual nose with strawberry jam and boysenberry fruit. Perhaps it is not as sophisticated as other growers’ Echezeaux, but it is very generous. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy, structured opening. With firm grip on its masculine finish, it is just missing a little complexity and breeding to merit a higher score.

The 2012 Echézeaux is flat-out stunning. A deep, resonant wine, the Echézeaux covers every inch of the palate with striking depth and nuance. Cinnamon, cloves, menthol, smoke and plums all flesh out on the rich, voluptuous finish. Everything about the 2012 is huge; the fruit, tannin and structure, yet the wine's balance is absolutely impeccable. What a pleasure it is to taste this magnificent Burgundy from the Drouhin family.
