A much spicier if less earthy nose is more deeply pitched with its aromas of poached plum, exotic tea, black cherry and a whiff of sandalwood. The round, supple and surprisingly forward mid-palate of the medium-bodied flavors contrasts immediately with the very firm, markedly powerful and moderately austere finish. This too is excellent and while it's not a refined Echézeaux (examples from Les Rouges du Bas rarely are), it is not only imposing but offers fine development potential as well.
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.
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
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.
