Echézeaux, Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot 2020

Tasting Notes

A wonderfully expressive and broad-ranging nose displays notes of black cherry and raspberry coulis, spice, violet and sandalwood. The exceptionally rich and unusually full-bodied flavors brim with dry extract while exhibiting excellent power on the mouth coating, balanced and complex finale that goes on and on. I very much like the outstanding persistence and this is an impressive Ech. Note: from a large 1.33 ha holding in Les Treux, En Orveau and Les Poulaillères Drink: 2035+

23 barrels – lucky man! Inky purple black, in colour. Starts a bit blockbuster for Echezeaux, then refines somewhat. Still, this is not for the fainthearted. Quite firm tannins but ripe enough. Decent weight behind, but this is still unresolved. A few blackberries though predominantly red fruit. 13.8% alcohol. Note that the malolactic for this wine was fairly late, taking place in the summer. Tasted: November 2021
