Lucien Le Moine Echezeaux Grand Cru 2013
An intensely floral nose is comprised by unusually high-toned aromas of mostly red cherry along with a variety of spice elements that include dried orange peel, sandalwood and anise. There is terrific power and intensity to the imposingly scaled flavors that coat the palate with both dry extract and very firm tannins on the hugely long finish. This is a big example of the appellation and is going to require lots of cellar time.
