Louis Jadot, Grands-Echezeaux, 2009
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.
