Cool yet ripe aromas of spicy deeply pitched fruit, earth, game and a background touch of wood precede the impressively rich, sleek and tautly muscular flavors that brim with minerality on the firm, detailed and lingering finish that is also youthfully austere. There is a touch of wood evident but I suspect that it will be rapidly integrated with a few years of bottle age. Note: from En Orveaux
The 2017 Echézeaux Grand Cru offers mainly black fruit on the nose, wilted violets, and just a touch of baking powder, dominated by the 100% new oak at the moment. The palate is dense and grippy on the entry, quite firm and assertive, with a fine line of acidity but here, I find the wood tannins rather dominating the finish at the expense of fruit expression.
