The 2017 Echézeaux Grand Cru is completely de-stemmed. It has a slightly conservative bouquet with pure dark cherry and cranberry aromas, but does not quite deliver the nuance and complexity of the best wines from this vineyard in 2017. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, but very strict and stoic, tight-lipped towards the finish. Hopefully this will gain more personality once it is in bottle.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2035
