Tasting Notes

**Note: from Champs Traversin; this wine is a négociant offering vinified from purchased fruit**
A very spicy nose of primarily dark berry fruit also evidences discreet notes of earth and sandalwood. There is excellent intensity to the cool and pure medium-bodied flavors that possess both good size and weight before culminating in a palate coating and moderately austere finish that delivers excellent length.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (53), January 2014

The 2012 Echezeaux Grand Cru comes from bought-in fruit whereby Jean-Marie conducts the harvest. It has a radiant bouquet with lively redcurrant, fresh strawberry and Morello aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a velvety smooth entry, good acidity and quite a weighty finish with fine matiere. This is very promising.
