Jean Grivot Echezeaux Grand Cru 2015
A spicier but even more restrained nose combines notes of red, blue and dark pinot fruit with those of rose petal, violet and sandalwood. This is quite ripe but there is a lovely sense of freshness and vivacity to the concentrated, muscular and superbly rich medium weight plus flavors that possess a highly seductive mouthfeel while delivering outstanding length on the powerful finish. This is firm but really quite refined and while it should age effortlessly it should also be approachable after only 7 to 8 years or so.
