Located in Les Rouges du Bas. Dense dark purple. The fruit shows immediate character, a full very dark raspberry, with a significant weight of fruit on the palate, yet retaining the essential lacy delicacy of the vineyard albeit in a turbo charged style. Tasted: October 2020
The 2019 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a pleasant bouquet of predominantly red fruit laced with cedar, autumn leaves and Earl Grey, gently unfolding in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and fine balance and poise. There is a slightly grainy texture toward a finish of modest length. This should evolve into a sedate but appealing Echézeaux.
The 2019 Echézeaux Grand Cru (Domaine Louis Jadot) is very promising, exhibiting incipiently complex aromas of raspberries, cassis, candied peel, burning embers and potpourri, followed by a medium to full-bodied, charming and vibrant palate that's broad and enveloping, with lively acids and fine, powdery structuring tannins.
Mid ruby colour. Very floral and ripe on the nose, seductive and fine. The palate is silky and rounded, the plentiful tannins very fine and ripe to provide a seamless texture. This is generous and succulent, full of sweet red fruit from start to finish. Long and seductive.
