An openly spicy and floral nose is more deeply pitched with its combination of black cherry, dark currant and sandalwood wisps. There is excellent power and punch to the middle weight plus flavors that retain a really lovely sense of detail while exhibiting excellent depth and length on the austere, serious and built-to-age finale. Note that this is going to need time before it realizes its full and considerable potential.
Score: 92/94 Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (61), January 2016
The 2014 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a clean, precise bouquet, quite broody and introspective, a subtle marine influence infusing the black and red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, chalky tannin, tightly wound with a strict, saline finish that leaves the mouth tingling long after it has departed. This is a classy, quite sophisticated Echézeaux in the making, one that should be at the upper end of my banded score with requisite bottle age.

(the Dujac holding is in the lieu-dit Les Champs Traversins): Bright, dark red. Expressive, highly perfumed aromas of black cherry, red licorice, rose petal, lavender and wild herbs. Tightly wound and energetic, showing terrific lift and an almost weightless impression to the flavors of red berries, spices and flowers. Has the fruit intensity to support its firm, dusty tannins. Quite unevolved today, but this wine only finished its malolactic fermentation in August.
