Tasting Notes

A deft application of wood frames the spicy if restrained aromas of plum and various dark berries along with hints of exotic tea and sandalwood. The rich, intense and muscular larger-scaled flavors possess excellent punch while the detailed and linear finish is a bit lean and dry. It could be the effects of the recent bottling but it would be fair to say that the balance isn't quite as well dialed in.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (77), January 2020

An extravagant bouquet of blackberries, plums, incense, rose petals and wood smoke introduces the 2017 Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru, a full-bodied, ample and multidimensional wine that's nicely concentrated and complete, its structuring tannins generously cloaked in juicy fruit, its finish long and precise. This year, Cheurlin vinified the two parts of his Grands Echezeaux separately but concluded—predictably, we agreed—that the whole was more interesting than the sum of the parts.
