Grands Echézeaux, Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot 2016

Tasting Notes

There is just a single barrel of the 2016 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru that is 100% whole bunch fruit this year. That stem addition does define the aromatics at the moment—although there is sufficient fruit to absorb that—very well defined and focused. The palate has palpable energy on the entry, a killer line of acidity, precise and unashamedly classic in style. It builds with confidence in the mouth, and there is a fantastic orange sorbet/blood orange note right on the finish that leaves the senses reeling with freshness and energy. Wow. A wine has arrived...
