Echezeaux du Dessus Grand Cru 2011
The wood treatment is evident but not dominant on the ultra-fresh aromas of plum, cassis, spice, tea and cinnamon. As is usually the case this is a powerful and impressively concentrated Ech with plenty of palate coating dry extract that helps to buffer the notably firm tannic spine shaping the robust but not rustic finale. This broad-shouldered and bold effort is going to require at least 7 to 8 years to be approachable and amply repay 15+. In two words, most impressive.
