Tasting Notes

This is aromatically quite similar to the Grands Echézeaux though there is perhaps even better depth. There is admirable punch, size, weight and concentration to the mid-palate though there is a mildly odd character to the finish that I find difficult to describe other than to say that it is definitely atypical. It's impossible to say whether it will dissipate once the wine is racked and cleaned up but if you can taste first I would do so before committing to quantity. On the plus side this displays superb underlying material so if it does clean up, this should be excellent. Drink 2023+
